Security by Design: The Benefits of Building Quality In

I recently sat down with Pete Erickson, founder of Modev, to discuss the recent findings from our 2016 State of the Software Supply Chain Report.  The conversation is available in the Security by Design podcast series that Pete has produced and made available on iTunes.  


Take a few minutes on your morning commute tolisten in on our conversation to learn how:

  • Using one of the latest versions of a software component can cut vulnerability ratio in half.
  • 75% of organizations lack policies that control the use of open source and third-party components
  • 97% of development organizations lack any vetting process for components being electively procured for use in applications.

The Security By Design Podcast is a software security focused podcast for all Developers, DevOps Engineers, Product Owners, UI and UX Designers. Good security practices start before a single line of code is written and the tools, methods and type of attacks being faced are changing faster than ever. This podcast is about finding ways to get and stay ahead of the security challenge.

If you happen to live in the DC area, please register for the Security by Design 2016 Conference coming up on October 28th in Tysons Corner at the Capital One offices.  We would love to see you there.
