What will you learn?

In this report, it is established that government agencies are far behind all other industries in key areas of application security (AppSec). Since governments house large quantities of citizen data, and web applications are the highest form of breaches, it is especially critical that governments have a strong AppSec program in place.

The report addresses some AppSec concepts that governments need to further invest in:

• Prerelease scanning to reduce remediation time

• Bot management to protect against automated attacks

• DevSecOps to properly guard citizen data
