Are your security and risk management practices prepared to scale with your development practices?

With the move towards agile development and continuous delivery – comes a dramatic increase in the use of third party and open source components to fuel innovation and speed development. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2015 ninety-nine percent of mission critical applications in global 2000 companies will use open source components.

As a result organizations have to rethink their security and risk management strategies to account for these new complexities. Whether you are responsible for Application Development, Application Security or Risk Management this breakfast briefing will open your eyes to new approaches.

8:30 – 9:30 am Networking Breakfast  
9:30 – 10:00 am Securing the New Software Supply Chain

Today software runs the things that run our world. Just like automobile manufacturers, software “manufacturers” need to apply supply chain management principles for both efficiency and quality. They need to be prepared to conduct a rapid and comprehensive “recall” when a defect is found. And they need to be able to ensure they are using quality “parts” from the start.

Today’s modern development practices – agile and component-based development - make this challenging to say the least. In this session, Wayne will discuss strategies and best practices to unite your security and development practices in a way that is:
  • Easy for developers and effective throughout the entire software lifecycle
  • Highly accurate and produce evidence that it is working
  • Continuous to address ongoing threats in real-time, ensuring sustaining trust

11:00 – 11:45 Got Vulnerabilities? You Need Visibility

Let's face it, Web Application security is a complex task and understanding the risk to your web and mobile environments is absolutely critical. Developers and Information Security professionals constantly struggle with the ability to properly assess their applications for vulnerabilities, as well as gain visibility into the open source components being used to add key functionality. This lack of visibility presents several risk factors for the organization – both technical and legal.

During this presentation, we will discuss the Fortify On Demand assessment process and how our integration with Sonatype delivers a new level and depth of visibility to our Customer’s critical software applications.
