Implementing a Practical AppSec Program: Expert Insights on Strategy & Execution

On-Demand Webcast|1 hour

In application security, recognizing threats is just the beginning. Real success requires choosing the right tools, adopting effective methodologies, and integrating security practices into development gates across the software development lifecycle — from "shift left" early-stage strategies to "shift right" monitoring post-deployment. As these elements converge, a challenge for security leaders emerges: designing a resilient, practical program that adapts to new challenges while consistently prioritizing and mitigating real-world risks.

Mic McCully of Oligo Security will lead the panel discussion. He'll be joined by experts Dustin Lehr, Sr. Director of Platform Security at Fivetran, and Naor Penso, Head of Product Security at FICO.

During the session, we'll dive into:

  1. Alert Overload and False Positives: The struggle of sifting through overwhelming alerts, discerning genuine threats from a sea of false positives, and the implications of both.
  2. Understanding Reachability: Delving into core considerations that define 'reachability' in application security, weighing the insights derived from both pre-deployment and post-deployment evaluations.
  3. Shaping a Proactive Culture: Transitioning from reactive measures to proactive teamwork. Overcoming trust barriers by fostering and empowering security champions within development teams, ensuring security becomes a shared responsibility.
