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. Unfortunately, components with known vulnerabilities continue to be used long after a fix is released - leaving your organization vulnerable to attack.

Join Jim Routh, CISO of Aetna and Wayne Jackson, CEO of Sonatype for an insightful assessment of what's working (and what's not) to address this risk. Whether you are responsible for Application Development, Application Security or Risk Management this discussion will open your eyes to new approaches.

6:00 – 6:30 pm 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

6:30 – 7:15 pm On the Road to Security at the Speed of Development

Join this open discussion with Jim Routh, CISO of Aetna, on his strategy to transform application security practices by empowering developers with the right insight and tools to build more secure software from the start. Jim's belief is the best way to achieve application security goals is to make it easy for developers to do the right thing from the start. And the expected outcomes are not only more secure applications, but also greater development efficiency and faster delivery on business goals.

Jim Routh is one of the most respected information security executives around. Prior to his role as CISO for Aetna, Jim was the Global Head of Application & Mobile Security for JP Morgan Chase and the CISO for KPMG, DTCC and American Express. And he plays an active role in the supporting the industry as a board member for the National Health-ISAC, former board member for the FS-ISAC, and current Chairman of the FS-ISAC Products & Services Committee.
