Why Security Must Be Part of the Software Life Cycle
As businesses embark on digital and cloud transformation to accelerate velocity and improve operational efficiencies, security just is not keeping pace. Virtually every business relies on software to keep it running, to keep it competitive. Simultaneously, application vulnerabilities are escalating, and breaches are common C-suite conversations. The current approach to application security relies on multiple security tools deployed at different layers of the software development life cycle, returning volumes of results. This taxes already understaffed application security and SecOps teams, who are challenged to make sense of it all, to address the vulnerabilities and to convey the full risk picture to the business.
In the webinar, Michael Osterman, Principal Analyst, Osterman Research, will discuss:
- Why the current approaches to security management are no longer adequate as the pace of business accelerates.
- The key steps to mitigate risk, including identifying, prioritizing and remediating vulnerabilities continuously.
- Why security should be part of the software development process and at all points in the software lifecycle.
- How prioritizing vulnerabilities properly can reduce risk
