  • Container Security Essentials Sep 23 2021 8:00 am UTC 61 mins
    David Benas, Associate Principal Consultant, Synopsys
    As the popularity of cloud-native applications continues to surge, containers are becoming the preferred option to package and deploy these applications because of the agility and scalability they deliver. According to Gartner, “by 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production.”

    The popularity of containers has also attracted the attention of hackers who are constantly looking for new ways to exploit them. Containers expand an organization’s attack surface and increase the risk to the applications they house. A comprehensive approach for container security is required to mitigate the risk to containerized applications and infrastructure.

    In this webinar, we’ll outline the essential elements required to secure your container environments, including:• What containers are and what they aren’t
    • How to look at container security holistically
    • Which of the top threats in the container landscapes you should worry about

  • Securing Vehicles after Production: Vulnerability Management & Security updates Recorded: Sep 2 2021 63 mins
    Dennis Kengo Oka, Principal Automotive Strategist, Synopsys
    As the automotive software development life cycle puts greater focus on cyber security, we’ll see safer, more secure cars on the roads. OEMs and suppliers use static code analysis, software composition analysis, and fuzz testing to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in automotive components during development and testing. But even with the right tools and processes, it’s impossible to eliminate every software vulnerability in a vehicle’s 100 million lines of code before releasing it into the field.

    Therefore, it’s important to continue finding and fixing bugs in vehicles after production. During operations and maintenance, detecting and managing new vulnerabilities in automotive components is a high priority. Patching these vulnerabilities means performing secure over-the-air (OTA) updates—and ensuring those updates don’t introduce new vulnerabilities.

    This talk will present the current challenges and suggest solutions to securing vehicles during the operations phase.
  • That's Not How This Works - All Development Should Be Secure Development Recorded: Sep 2 2021 52 mins
    Jonathan Knudsen, Senior Security Strategist
    All Development Should Be Secure Development
    Development teams are pressured to push new software out quickly. But with speed comes risk. Anyone can write software, but if you want to create software that is safe, secure, and robust, you need the right process. Register for this webinar to learn:
    - Why traditional approaches to software development usually end in tears and heartburn
    - How a structured approach to secure software development lowers risk for you and your customers
    - Why automation and security testing tools are key components in the implementation of a secure development life cycle
  • Maximizing the Impact of Static Analysis Recorded: Aug 26 2021 61 mins
    Meera Rao, Senior Director – Product Management (DevOps Solutions)
    Static analysis, also known as white box testing, static application security testing (SAST), or secure code review, finds bugs in application code, back doors, and other code-based vulnerabilities so you can mitigate those risks. But no static analysis tool can effectively address threats to a development environment out of the box. And many users have the misconception that the cost of tool adoption depends primarily on getting the tool working in a build environment.

    Static analysis is the only way to enable developers to automatically identify vulnerabilities as they write code in their integrated development environment (IDE). With SAST, developers can:
    •Run scans in their IDE by using plugins that provide just-in-time security guidance.
    •Review source code before checking it into a version control repository.
    •Remediate identified vulnerabilities.
    •Adopt a preventative mindset.

    Automation is an important part of adopting a SAST tool, as it drives efficiency, consistency, and early detection, enabling organizations to shift left. For a static analysis implementation to be effective, several distinct activities must come together to establish and maximize its impact. This webinar covers some challenges of SAST implementation and provides real solutions to get the most value out of SAST tools.
