Developers are your greatest AppSec Resource – Here’s How to Activate Them

Presented by

Amy DeMartine, Forrester Principal Analyst and Utsav Sanghani, Senior Product Manager, Synopsys

About this talk

Application vulnerabilities are a prime target for attackers, and the critical task of identifying and remediating these flaws before they’re exploited can be daunting, especially for organizations adopting DevOps and CI/CD practices. Security teams don’t have the time or resources to find and fix every vulnerability, and developers prefer to do what they do best – build and deploy features quickly. Fortunately, developers can be good at their jobs and be your most effective application security resources if you enable them with the low-friction tools and training at the precise time they need them. Join guest speaker Amy DeMartine, principal analyst at Forrester Research, and Utsav Sanghani, senior product manager at Synopsys, as they explore tools and techniques that can transform your developers into AppSec rock stars: - Rapid and continuous in-IDE security testing can help your developers find and fix issues before they ever get committed to your codebase. - Delivering short, contextualized AppSec training modules to developers in real time when they introduce vulnerabilities. - Most modern applications contain more open source code than proprietary code. Help your developers identify and avoid risky OSS components.
