When building new innovative software products, businesses’ first priority is often time to production - how quickly can I get this market disrupting idea into the hands of users. Code is often of low quality with little attention paid to best practices and security; the idea being “let's get the thing built and we’ll deal with quality later on when we have the investment / sales / talent”....
However this pressure to build fast can often lead to vulnerabilities in software code that can be exploited by attackers and lead to problems down the line - low quality software and a lack of process drives greater technical debt which can become unmanageable as a company scales ultimately slowing down innovation and competitiveness.
In recent times, organisations are realising that a change in culture is required to build securely and at speed, notably adopting DevSecOps - where security is baked into the rapid-release cycles that are typical of modern application development and deployment.
In this webinar, Tomas Gonzalez, from Cloud Native Application Security vendor, Snyk and Rodrigo Nascimento from software consultancy Codurance will show you how to overcome the challenges of implementing DevSecOps in a growing organisation. They'll be joined by host Amelia Bampton from Codurance who will be on hand to pose attendees' questions to the speakers throughout the session.
Some of the challenges they will address include:
What isn’t working:
- Why the old ways of doing security don’t mesh with the way we build apps today
- The challenges of including security into a devops/agile workflow
Where to get started:
- The dev-first security practices that can cut risk without harming agility
- Secure development during digital transformation
- Integrating security and compliance as part of your modernisation strategy
- Going beyond shift left to drive developer-first security
- Scaling security and compliance while growing
- The new tools and the shift in mindset that these changes demand
- Demo of a state-of-the-art CI/CD Pipeline
By the end of the webinar you’ll gain a deeper understanding on why DevSecOps is an important consideration for any ambitious organisation - from greenfield startup to ambitious scaleup and beyond.
