AppSec Best Practice, Innovations and Bridging the Security and Development Divide        

The rise of agile practices and DevOps has revolutionized software development. As a result, innovation is moving incredibly quickly – at a pace security teams cannot match. As more organizations shift testing processes “left”, security teams often lack visibility into/at the development stage, making it easier for gaps to be missed. False positives, backlogs, lack of clear prioritization and misalignment within teams create friction between what are frequently siloed departments. 

This half day event will gather leaders in security and development together from many of the largest organizations in the region to discuss and explore effective application security, the latest trends in software security, recent technological innovations in the Veracode offering and listen to two organizations present on how they are currently developing and maturing their AppSec programs and securing their software.
