ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Why Application Security is Your Best Cyber Defense
As threat actors increasingly target vulnerabilities in your applications, global enterprises are shifting their focus to improving application security. Among the questions they are asking: What is our risk profile? Do we have a strategic plan? Is our speed of response on par with our adversaries’ speed of attack?
Businesses often struggle to make application security a strategic imperative, even as they increasingly pursue digital transformation projects. Cue complications ranging for complying with privacy regulations and battling corporate espionage to safeguarding customer data and the corporate brand.
How exactly can organizations identify, measure and overcome these challenges, while continuing to deliver applications and services to all customers in the minimum amount of time?
If you’re looking for new perspectives on this question, then please join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how they have been able to help their organizations transform how they approach application security initiatives that deliver business value.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the top application security risks that companies are wrestling with today?
- What complications do cloud and digital transformation projects create?
- What is the best application security transformation starting point?
- Does securing the application layer supersede other security concerns?
- What cultural changes best facilitate a strategic approach to application security?
- How can application security programs reduce cost, risk and time to market?
Joining Mathew to provide expert insight and case studies is Ian Ashworth, Technical Security Consultant for Synopsys.
