Agility Broke AppSec. Now It’s Going to Fix It – Chen Gour Arie – ASW #207

In today’s high-tech industries, security is struggling to keep up with rapidly changing production systems and the chaos that agile development introduces into workflows. Application security (AppSec) teams are fighting an uphill battle to gain visibility and control over their environments. Rather than invest their time in critical activities, teams are overwhelmed by gaps in visibility and tools to govern the process. As a result, many digital services remain improperly protected.

In this episode, we plan to address and discuss the current state of AppSec, and point out a few common failure points. Afterwards we plan to discuss what agile AppSec looks like, and how a reorganization, and a shift in management strategy could greatly transform the field, and allow business to truly address the risk of under-protected software.
