Make Shift Happen (Sponsored Session)

During the Agile revolution, the wider software development community discovered the benefits of shifting testing left.  The primary benefits included reduced schedule risk, higher team confidence and reduced development costs. Additionally, developers have gotten better at writing functional code and fewer things are found late in the cycle. What if we tried the same with security? Would we see the same benefits? Absolutely! Let’s talk about how to make shift happen in your SDLC.

Security testing has been a late comer to the shift left phenomenon for three main reasons. First, cooperation and trust between security and development was nonexistent. Second, the technology was too slow and clunky to have a positive impact with developers. Third, security testing tools have been riddled with a high FP rate that made them more of a distraction than they were worth.

Recent advancements in the security testing industry have made the tools much more useful and accessible to development teams. Now is the time to bring them into your SDLC as early as possible and reap the rewards.
