VIRTUAL: Integrating and automating security across the development lifecycle

March 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for the March OWASP meetup, where we are going VIRTUAL! We’re meeting at lunchtime (12 PM – 1 PM) instead of our normal Thursday evening.


Title: Integrating and automating security across the development lifecycle

The modern-day application consists of approximately 80% open-source code. In 2017 there were 87 Billion Downloads from The Central Repository (the largest open-source Java repository in the world). 1 in 8 of those open source libraries contains a known security vulnerability. Known vulnerabilities in open source are widely exploited as an attack vector and lead to well document breaches such as the one that hit Equifax in 2017 (Apache Struts 2 Rest API library). Cyber Security crime costs the global economy $450 billion in 2016. This eclipsed the entire illicit drug trade which cost the global economy $430 billion.

As the number of breaches continues to rise, DevOps organizations are making investments to better protect themselves by doing more than just building stronger castle walls. In this session, learn how organizations are taking steps to integrate and automate security across the development lifecycle to build quality into their software.
