The Discussion: Application Security Risk Management Strategies

Insecure applications are the biggest threat to data breaches and the source of over 90% of attacks. This talk will discuss in-depth the three core strategies of application risk management: "Find and Fix”, "Secure at the Source”, and "Protect in Play”. Additionally, Mr. Kirkwood will share the results of a recent study on Application Security Maturity and tie in key findings to some of the root causes of insecure software.
