Managing Applications Securely: A SANS Survey

  • Webcast Aired Wednesday, 27 Apr 2016 1:00PM EDT (27 Apr 2016 17:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Johannes Ullrich, Tim Jarrett, Amit Ashbel, Ryan O'Leary

Applications and software components, particularly web and mobile apps, have proven difficult to manage and secure, according to the SANS 2015 survey on application security. This year's survey explores how organizations are improving their application security practices, and what they still need help with.

Webcast attendees will gain insight into best practices and get advice about managing the security of their applications. Specifically, they will learn:

  • What applications introduced the most risk into respondents' environments in 2015
  • What percentage of their breaches resulted from badly-coded applications versus how many came from configuration-induced vulnerabilities
  • How frequently organizations test the security of their applications in production
  • What tools are most useful in protecting applications in production
  • Management challenges around commercial third-party applications and applications hosted in the public cloud.
