AppSec for new CISOs & CSOs

New CISOs and CSOs step into a difficult position – tasked with protecting an increasingly distributed infrastructure from a long list of adversaries with malicious intent who use progressively advanced tactics.

This e-book, AppSec for the Newly Hired CISO/CSO, explores the first 100 days of a new CISO/CSO’s tenure – specifically from the perspective of application security – breaking down objectives into 30-, 60- and 100-day priorities. Read on to get started.

  • The advantages of using instrumentation to automate AppSec

    Integrating AppSec into DevOps can be a challenge. But the urgency of going to production without proper AppSec testing practices will only lead to a buildup of defects that will cost more in the long run.

    Instrumentation-based application testing can help improve security without skilled security staff or the need to change code. It can help developers push code into production much faster than formal processes for testing and approval.

    Dive into this white paper to learn more about the advantages of using instrumentation to automate AppSec.

  • How to speed app deployment with increased security

    Most organizations today are deploying code to production at least multiple times per week. However, a dependence on outdated application security tools is causing delays for many, and it may be time to take another look at the security tools being used in your process and where you could stand to save some time.

    Take a look through this white paper to learn how some of the legacy scanning-based appsec tools at your organization may be complicating your DevOps process, and how you can become even more efficient in deploying more secure apps.
