DevSecOps Summit: Continuous QA Risk Analysis with an AppSec-DevOps-OWASP Mindset!

The scope and complexities of Application Security testing in a DevOps world are rapidly increasing as new technologies emerge, applications become more advanced, vulnerabilities more prevalent, and threats become more astute! The quantity and types of vulnerabilities can make the process of testing overwhelming, especially in a DevOps and Agile world when factoring in aggressive target dates and a lack of resources. Utilizing a rapid, strategic risk-based analysis approach while factoring in the OWASP Top 10 will assist you in prioritizing your overall testing effort. If you can’t test for every vulnerability, every time then at least ensure you test for the most critical to your organization. Risk analysis is an essential element to successfully address the demands of quality in today’s IT landscape. This interactive webinar will present information to enable your organization to implement approaches and proven strategies to more successfully apply an Agile risk analysis approach to better manage your delivery pipeline AppSec strategy. The audience will learn how performing Risk Analysis on testing assets will dramatically improve quality, the perils of ignoring the OWASP Top 10, important, key risk terminology and definitions, and a rapid, reliable Agile approach to risk scoring.
