  • The risk-based approach to understanding and reducing the risk of security breaches is key to: Knowing which application security vulnerabilities leave the business most exposed to breaches and why.
  • Gaining visibility into your application security risks and the optimal approach to reducing those risks?
  • Determining and quantifying the level of risk you are willing to accept for breaches that occur in your externally facing web applications.

While many organizations understand the value of the risk-based approach, they need guidance on best practices for implementation. In this webinar, we will discuss how to transform application security with a business-focused approach to managing risk. This will be relevant to Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and security managers who are looking to establish proven processes for identifying, reducing and communicating application security risk levels.

In this webinar, participants will be informed about implementing risk-based approaches used by leading industry practitioners to secure their web application and IT assets. Topics to be discussed include industry best practices used to:

  • Align application security projects and deliverables with business drivers
  • Select the most meaningful metrics for tracking application security and driving higher levels of resiliency
  • Create dashboards that track key metrics, highlight key trends quantify the potential application risks identified
