How Continuous Security Testing Better Supports Rapid Software Development

Presented by

Mohamed Abotaleb, Cyber Defence Center & IR Manager, Telefonica and Ron Peeters, Managing Director EMEA, Synack

About this talk

How Continuous Security Testing Better Supports Rapid Software Development and Increasingly Agile Systems Penetration testing is the traditional method used for uncovering exploitable vulnerabilities but falls progressively short in protecting the business due to its inability to emulate adversarial hacker behavior and today’s sophisticated cyber-attacks. Furthermore, periodic pen tests typically need to be scheduled at least several months in advance and thereby do not align with the short term urgency and nature of the continuous deployment required by DevOps SDLC. Hence, applications and updates go live without being thoroughly tested, resulting in the risk that at any moment in time serious vulnerabilities may be introduced into live systems and are not detected in a timely manner. Join speakers Mohamed Abotaleb and Ron Peeters and learn about: - The security issues and challenges of a rapid software development and deployment environment with agile systems - A new continuous security testing model that better supports DevOps SDLC and Cloud environment - How this testing model combines automation technology with continuous or on-demand manual security testing - A recent case study from Telefonica that demonstrates the benefits and capabilities of such continuous testing security model
