    Drew Kilbourne and Larry Ponemon
    If you’re a provider of financial services, then client trust, privacy, and risk management are critical to your success. Therefore, you must protect your organization’s sensitive data from cyber attacks and data breaches. A recent survey of current software security practices in the financial services industry explores the industry’s software security posture and its ability to address security-related issues.

    In this webinar with Drew Kilbourne, managing director, Synopsys and Larry Ponemon, chairman, Ponemon Institute, will review findings from the report and discuss what they mean for the industry at large. Here’s a preview of some key findings:

    - 56% of organizations had experienced an attack resulting in system failure and downtime.
    - 74% were concerned about security vulnerabilities introduced by third-party suppliers, but less than 43% said they require third parties to adhere to cyber security requirements.
    - Only 34% of financial applications are tested for vulnerabilities, and only 25% of respondents were confident in their ability to detect vulnerabilities before going to market.

  • The Security of Applications Supporting the New Remote Lifestyle May 26 2021 6:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    Mike McGuire, Product Marketing Manager, Synopsys; Lisa Bryngelson, Senior Product Manager, Synopsys
    With very little preparation, society was forced to move online as social distancing and shutdown mandates were implemented in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. Numerous parts of our lives that we were accustomed to doing in the physical world are now done virtually—changing the way we work, learn, and interact. As a result, we all developed an increased reliance on mobile applications.

    Using Black Duck® Binary Analysis, Synopsys set out to analyze the security of the most popular Android applications in categories experiencing significant growth throughout the pandemic. Join this live webinar to learn:

    • Which apps were analyzed and the analysis methods used
    • Noteworthy security findings
    • What the findings mean for app developers and consumers alike
  • Integrate AppSec Tools Into DevOps Pipelines Without Slowing Down May 26 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jason Schmitt, GM of Software Integrity Group at Synopsys and Dan Kennedy, Research Director at 451 Research
    Integrating security testing into continuous integration / continuous delivery or deployment (CI/CD) pipelines requires integrating tool scans for static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), or software composition analysis (SCA), which are each performed at different stages of the CI/CD pipeline. These tools each have their own strengths and weaknesses and are complementary to each other. But how long each tool takes to complete a scan affects how often and when they are deployed into a staging or production environment.

    A recent paper by 451 Research shows that production web applications are expected to be largely free of security defects, and the pressures of keeping up with release cycles that deploy more frequently have compelled information security and development teams to better collaborate. Synopsys addresses those challenges with Intelligent Orchestration.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    Why legacy CI/CD approaches can’t keep up with the speed of DevOps
    How Synopsys Intelligent Orchestration:
    - Helps break down silos and leverages a dedicated pipeline that automatically runs the right security tools at the right time
    - Triggers manual testing activities based on software development life cycle events and predefined policies, while also providing continuous metrics and feedback
    - Enables security teams to automate security gates and enforce policies for all applications across their organization, at enterprise scale

  • Part 4: Automate the Initiation and Management of Out-of-Band AppSec Activities May 5 2021 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Meera Rao, Senior Director - Product Management (DevOps Solutions)
    The final part in the webinar series provides real-world guidance on how to balance application security activities, including both those that are automated and run inline in your CI/CD pipelines, and the out-of-band activities that are traditionally executed manually. Implementing security gates at strategic places in the CI/CD pipeline to break the build when critical and high vulnerabilities are found keeps teams informed and reduces communication overhead. Just as there must be continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment, there also must be continuous collaboration, and continuous communication across development, security, and operations teams.
  • Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers Apr 28 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Phil Odence, GM, Black Duck Audits at Synopsys
    In over 1,500 codebases audited in 2020, Black Duck Audits found that nearly every one contained open source components. Not only that, but a significant percentage of “proprietary code” overall was open source. However, left unmanaged, open source can lead to license compliance issues plus security and code quality risks. Whether you’re on the buy side or sell side, these risks could negatively affect valuation in an M&A transaction.

    Many acquirers have come to understand all this in concept; the Black Duck Audit Services group has the data. Join us for this webinar as we answer questions about the code of tech companies being acquired today. We’ll cover:

    • Open source license and security risks by the numbers
    • Why audits have become the norm in M&A tech due diligence

  • Shifting Left to Accelerate Security Approvals for ATOs in Defense Programs Recorded: Apr 20 2021 56 mins
    Joe Jarzombek, Director for Government & Critical Infrastructure Programs
    Demands for more secure software and more rapid application development have led to the emergence of risk-based DevSecOps, which adds security activities, increases depth, and improves testing governance. The best strategy is to shift from a reactive to a proactive security approach that injects security at the right time and place with automated continuous testing. Arming developers with proven application security tools integrated within their supporting CI/CD toolchains reduces the time and effort needed to achieve authorization for changes in software to operate on a DOD network or weapon system. Key technologies such as static application security testing (SAST) and software composition analysis (SCA) help developers deliver high-quality and more secure codebases in the front end of the pipeline. Mitigating technical debt early in the software development life cycle (SDLC) provides significant cost savings while accelerating the delivery of more secure software.

    Join Joe Jarzombek (USAF Lt. Col., retired) as he discusses means for successfully scaling responsiveness with a secure SDLC. He will cover how:

    •Automated continuous testing can be used throughout the SDLC
    •Catching security defects at the desktop can be like using a spell-checker to drive savings while rapidly mitigating risks attributable to exploitable software
    •Developer productivity can provide more time for creating new features rather than fixing newly entered issues

  • Lunch and Learn Part 3: Reduce the Burden on Developers With Automation Recorded: Apr 15 2021 53 mins
    Meera Rao, Senior Director - Product Management (DevOps Solutions)
    Developers are often taught to emphasize functionality over security, and many developers aren’t security experts. For this reason, it’s crucial to ensure they stay aware of the risks of vulnerable code. But training materials are often static and inconvenient to access, using the internet for guidance isn’t consistent or reliable, and remediation advice from tools isn’t necessarily project-aware or product-specific. And unfortunately, security experts are often seen as an impediment to business goals, and they may not be experienced developers. The third part of the webinar series covers developer enablement and avoiding defect management overload.
  • Make the most of AppSec with OWASP guidelines and SAST Solutions Recorded: Apr 14 2021 60 mins

    • How can you ensure that release cycles are not slowed down?
    • How should you manage false positives?
    • How do you satisfy compliance needs?
  • Why SAST and SCA Together Are Better, Faster, Stronger Recorded: Mar 18 2021 42 mins
    Utsav Sanghani, Senior Product Manager, Staff, Synopsys
    Static application security testing (SAST) is critical for uncovering and eliminating issues in proprietary code. However, over 60% of the code in an average application today is composed of open source components. SAST isn’t designed to find open source vulnerabilities (CVEs) or identify open source licenses. And manually maintaining a repository of approved open source components for developers is inefficient and time consuming. That’s where software composition analysis (SCA) comes in.

    Join a Synopsys expert as he explores the benefits of bringing SAST and SCA together. He’ll explain why using an SCA tool to scan open source dependencies is as imperative to a software development strategy as using SAST to test proprietary code. He’ll also demonstrate how developers, by combining SAST and SCA analysis in the IDE, can address issues holistically as they code, saving time and increasing productivity so they can deliver secure, high-quality software faster.
Build secure, high-quality software faster.
