Continuous Security Testing for Continuous Application Deployment, A Bridge Too Far?

Dinner for Houston Security Leaders

Tuesday, July 12th, 2022 | Masraff's

The rate of modern software development is outpacing our security testing capacity and capability. As organizations have gone remote and increasingly digital, they’ve introduced new vulnerabilities, putting additional strain on security teams. Facing a worldwide security talent shortage, organizations are challenged to evolve their security testing methodologies to keep pace with attackers, continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) processes, and digital transformation initiatives.

      • Alternatives to overcome talent and tools gaps that prevent current security processes from keeping pace with agile software development and increasingly sophisticated attackers.

      • Leverage frameworks like those provided by OWASP to assess common and critical vulnerabilities, new CVEs as they appear, and benchmark against best practices for cloud, web, and host security.

      • The power of crowdsourcing, talented and on-demand security researchers, to bridge the worldwide security talent shortage.
