A CISO’s Perspective on Managing Application Security
Anna Delaney – Executive Editor, ISMG / Robert Cuddy – Global Application Security Evangelist, HCL Software /

Application security has never been more important with the rising importance of data privacy and data integrity worldwide. And this is on top of the ever-present risk of data breaches. Enterprises today are developing applications that must integrate with both new and evolving line-of-business processes and doing so securely is critical.
A CISO must evaluate how those applications contribute to an organization’s security posture and manage an overall risk portfolio, while remaining compliant against evolving standards. Application security is a key part of a cybersecurity program that reduces risk not only during development, but also when applications are in production, to ensure the data behind them is protected. With the increasing reliance on applications for core business functions, Application security is increasingly becoming a board room concern. Working to maintain the speed of DevOps while simultaneously shifting to larger remote workforces that access resources outside the corporate perimeter has also created greater urgency.
All this leads to important questions such as: How are CISOs improving their processes to integrate security into DevOps? What are the skills that are needed by teams for better application security? What are the tools that aid more secure development of applications? What are the highest security priorities for CISOs, and how are they managing increasing IT risks?
Please join ISMG’s Anna Delaney for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on their experiences.
Discussion topics will include:
- Challenges enterprises facing around application risk management
- How applications affect an organization’s risk portfolio
- Techniques CISOs are using to improve their security postures
- How security executives are building security into DevOps methodologies
Joining Anna to provide expert insight and case studies are Robert Cuddy, Global Application Security Evangelist at HCL Software, and Randeep Chhabra, General Manager, AppScan, Asia Pacific and Japan, HCL Software.
