Jeremiah Grossman: Focus on ransomware, SDLC, and endpoints

Network World

With so many elements in information security -- application, network infrastructure, the endpoint, perimeter defenses, and data-centric approaches -- it's easy to fall in the trap of touting one as more important than the other. That overlap is most evident with application and endpoint security. For Jeremiah Grossman, the new chief security strategist at security vendor Sentinel One, application security and endpoint security are just different steps in the kill chain.

How Fuzzing Redefines Application Security

ForAllSecure

The application security testing market is highly fragmented. From SAST to DAST to SCA to IAST to RASP, the current state of the market is a byproduct of various assertions on what is believed to be the best way to address application security testing.

Creep

A CIO's Voice

This is often the case with application development. As the project moves through the software development life cycle (SDLC), requirement changes become increasingly more expensive and deliverable times become more protracted. Users do not want the system and use scope creep to perpetually stall the completion of the application.

Challenging ROI Myths Of Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

ForAllSecure

Waste : How much of this developer effort will eventually be wasted due to FPs with no measurable improvement in the security of an application? Modern fuzzers autonomously generate inputs and send them to target applications for behavior verification. When target applications behave unexpectedly, this is a sign of an underlying defect. Back when unit testing was introduced to the SDLC, it fundamentally changed how software was developed.
