A 2012 SANS survey revealed that obtaining management buy-in and funding were the major obstacles to implementing an application security program. At the SANSFire conference in June 2012, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore moderated an application security roundtable that focused on this issue. The consensus was that there is a lack of information, tools and techniques for security managers to use in convincing management of the need for application security.

This roundtable kicked off a SANS effort to produce two tools to aid managers: a report detailing what methods of justification have seen success; and a simple model for determining appropriate levels of spending on application security based on an organization's level of threat, compliance and business position. This webinar will discuss the results of this effort, demonstrate the workings and of the model, and review several industry examples. Join us in exploring how to advance the state of application security across the industry.
