Threatpost is featuring a series of blog posts on Application Security by Veracoder Fergal Glynn. The first post in the series " A CISO's Guide to Defining Application Security - Part 1: Defining AppSec" went live today.
In this post, Fergal defines Application Security or "AppSec" and lists key elements of the discipline. The post outlines various development and deployment options available today which can potentially introduce security vulnerabilities into software, and the need for Appsec products to help manage security risk across all these options.
The next post in this series will examine growing threats targeting businesses from hacks, attacks and malware. Stay tuned!
