Topic: DevSecOps Best Practices You Need to Know to Secure Your Applications
Penetration testing plays a critical role in identifying application and software vulnerabilities to remediate the flaws. For faster business operations, applications are now being developed in shorter agile cycles. However, application security is often overlooked in a high-speed development process. Security must be first in line in DevSecOps with frequent pen tests. In practice, agile development combined with high-speed development makes it challenging for security professionals to conduct pen tests in shorter sprints. And this can lead to high cyber risks for applications. This webinar highlights these challenges and provides a balanced solution. Especially, presenting how penetration testing processes and systems are evolving to overcome the lag in application vulnerability detection to streamline the development process to effectively patch the flaws and secure applications.
