Application security has become one of the most important frontiers for protecting digital assets, and has effectively changed focus from protecting network perimeters to ensuring security around dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of applications. Rapid growth of applications developed in each organization is fueled by availability of data and rapid development programming languages and platforms, which make it feasible to create robust applications in a fraction of the time compared to even a few years ago. Combined with a wide range of development methodologies, challenges for application security programs have never been higher.
This session will cover some of the latest trends in increasing the effectiveness of application security programs, as presented and discussed at the latest OWASP Summit in London. Presentation will include upcoming changes within several OWASP projects aimed at increasing ability to measure, manage, and improve their information security programs, while forming stronger relationships with product owners and developers.
