An AppSec Awareness Program for Developers: The Critical Steps to Success

Presented by

James Hofsiss DLT; Kurt Risley Checkmarx, Stephen Gates Checkmarx

About this talk

Today, agencies are striving to improve their application security programs, while at the same time, not slowing down the development, delivery, and deployment of their software applications. Can a balance be achieved between security and an organization’s (or agency’s) daily business requirements? We know it’s possible. Application Security (AppSec) Awareness Programs that are specifically focused on the development community are vastly needed. The statistics demonstrate that without an agency-wide program, vulnerabilities will still make their way into your applications, making them ripe for exploitation. However, many agencies are still not sure where to get started, the milestones they need to achieve along the way, the KPIs they need to track, and how to measure the success or failure of their program. Considering this predicament, this educational video should help you achieve your AppSec goals. In this webinar, we will: • Explain the kinds of ad-hock programs that exist in many agencies today • Provide details of what a modern Awareness Program looks like • Discuss the four key areas that must be addressed before starting • Highlight the best way to organize your approach and setup • Emphasize how to kick-start and launch your Awareness Program • Clarify the assessment process and ways to continuously improve (ISC)², Inc. members will earn 1 Hour CPE credit by completing this webinar.
