In today's world where applications are distributed through cloud and mobile platforms, the risks to vulnerable applications are multiplying. Application managers are looking for ways to consolidate controls around their disparate applications and assign the proper staff, leadership and workflow processes to do this.
Based on the 2014 Application Security Programs and Practices survey, application security is on the rise, with 83% of 488 respondents reporting some sort of application security program in place (up from 66% in SANS' 2013 survey). In the 2014 survey, respondents' primary focus for their security programs was around web applications.
This year's survey intends to find out how the rise of mobility and cloud applications is changing respondents' application security program efforts and to gather best practice advice for secure management of disparate applications throughout their lifecycle.
Part 1 of this two-part webcast, held on Wednesday, May 13, will focus on the management issues surrounding application security. This second part of the webcast will focus on issues in application development.
