What Roles do Developers Have in AppSec

The speed of modern software development isn’t slowing down anytime soon, which means now more than ever, developers need to act in critical functions within your application security (AppSec) machine. In order to work with (and not against) security, developers must embrace the “shift left” mentality to incorporate secure coding procedures earlier in their processes. At the same time, members of the security team must work with developers to understand their processes, tools, and workflow needs for more effective training.

What Will You Learn?

The modern software development process is a team effort, as organizations shift security left to integrate it earlier in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Security and development must work together to ensure the health of their code and reduce the risk of dangerous flaws once software is deployed.

As developers field new projects and tight deadlines every day, it’s critical that they have the tools, processes, and education they need to take an active role in application security (AppSec) without slowing down – and it’s also important for members of the security team to understand what developers need and how they work.

To gain more insight into how developers can take on a more active role in security, listen to this webinar and learn:

  • How cross-training between security and development helps developers learn best practices and helps security understand the demands of development.
  • Why coaching and training for developers is so critical to improving the speed and efficiency of flaw discovery and remediation.
  • Why giving developers a voice in setting requirements for security solutions and policies empowers security to take developer needs into account.
