Application porosity - opsec for developers

The life of a commercial software developer is a difficult one. Or at least we have to assume it is because of how many of them half-ass it when code starts to get complicated. Okay, maybe that’s unfair. Maybe it’s not all half-assing. It’s complicated. Literally. There’s many functions that are overly complex. They are so complex with so many variables and interactions as to be actually... READ MORE

The enormous growth of DevOps is no accident. As organizations attempt to navigate the complexities of digital business, speed and flexibility are everything. Yet somewhere between innovation and disruption lies a basis fact: A DevOps initiative is only as good as the security framework that supports it. Unfortunately, many organizations focus on speed and precision at the expense of security.... READ MORE

how to create a development champion on the security team

We talk a lot about the need for development teams to create security champions. With the shift to DevOps – and the intersecting of development, security, and operations teams – development and security teams can no longer operate in their traditional silos. Each team needs to not only work closely together, but also have a much deeper understanding of each others’ pains, processes, and... READ MORE

DevSecOps - development

The shift to DevOps and DevSecOps has already happened, it's only a question of when we all catch up. Organizations in all industries are creating software not only faster, but also in more precise, collaborative and incremental ways than ever before. In fact, we’ve seen the shift in our own customer base, where the percentage of applications scanned for security on a weekly basis jumped 50... READ MORE

What You Don’t Do for Secure Programming

The hardest part of growing up is that everything you’re allowed to do is communicated in a general sense and everything that you’re not allowed to do is enumerated specifically and in detail AFTER you’ve gotten in trouble for doing it. So you’re told things like, “Go play in the yard.” Yet you get chewed out for very specifically flooding the yard to play mud football. Apparently the lawn, the... READ MORE

AppSec in Review: How Developers Respond to Security Finding

We recently published the State of Software Security Developer Guide, based on real application security testing data. Among the key takeways, the data in the report offers strong evidence that eLearning, security training, and DevSecOps practices have a positive effect on developers' effectiveness at fixing flaws in their code. In this episode of the AppSec in Review podcast, Evan Schuman and... READ MORE

By Jet Anderson December 4, 2017

Sometimes you need to get information quickly on what's going into your project. You may not even have the project in a buildable state yet. So, if you're pulling together packages to solve your coding challenges but you're not anywhere near the point of building, how do you get actionable intelligence to help you make smart decisions about what you're putting in this build? This is where Quick... READ MORE
