The new—and secure—approach to the software development lifecycle

Presented by

Scott Leetch, Application Security Specialist UK&I and Simon Howard, Application Security Pre-sales Consultant, Micro Focus

About this talk

Turn on the news today, and you’ll see how hacks and other cyber threats are wreaking havoc on businesses across the globe. What you might not know is that 84% of security breaches exploit vulnerabilities at the application layer. And almost 79% of applications contain at least one critical or high vulnerability. While the statistics are staggering and application security awareness is increasing, there is still a continued challenge to reduce the friction between development and security to enable developers to build new applications better and faster, while also ensuring that the applications are secure. Join us for this session to look at new approaches to the software development lifecycle (SDLC)—a new SDLC that looks holistically at the software development process and integrates security testing from beginning to end. We’ll draw on the knowledge of our AppSec Experts and provide real-world use cases that clarify and reinforce the need for a rapid transition to a holistic approach to application security.
