Veracode integrations make development's job easier

As software increasingly plays a critical role in how organizations conduct business, we are seeing two trends emerge: 1. Organizations want more software produced faster. 2. Cyberattackers are finding software a more attractive target. For developers, all the above means that their jobs are changing. The need to get software out the door faster has led to a shift to DevSecOps – where software is... READ MORE

Security should commit to understanding dev processes

And this new role requires a new understanding of developer priorities and processes. The security function cannot be effective in a... READ MORE

Social Engineering CTF at DEF CON

I’d read about social engineering for a few years before I first stepped into the Social Engineering Village at DEF CON 20. But I didn’t grasp the power of this type of attack until I watched a live call during which employees of major companies simply offered up all the information needed to breach their systems – no technology required. I was hooked. In case you’re not familiar with social... READ MORE

How SQL injection happens

The EU Global Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) go into effect in May 2018, and will introduce stark new data security requirements for any organization in the EU, or doing business in the EU.

Security's role shifts in a DevSecOps world

Roles shifting can be disconcerting. Having a clear role and understanding your responsibilities and tasks is comforting. But getting too comfortable can be dangerous. Take parenting for example. Parents wouldn’t be doing their kids any favors by continuing to feed and dress them as if they were 4 when they’re 10. As children age, they start to do these basic tasks on their own, and the parent... READ MORE
