Managing Software Security Risk: Streamlining AppSec Policy Definition and Implementation

Organizations often struggle in defining security policies. Its a highly critical component that drives security programs, yet an incredibly sophisticated process in defining, creating and implementing with support of other organizational departments.

As close to 90% of attacks today originate through software applications, its essential for companies to bridge the security/development gap and prioritize application security from the ground up.

This presentation will provide some insight on defining appsec policies, highlighting the differences from InfoSec policy, attributes o effective policy and how to make policies actionable. It will articulate the best ways to use these policies, including mapping to compliance requirements and organizing new processes around policy implementation.
