The presentation

Owasp logo normal.jpg

In an enterprise with hundreds or thousands of applications, securing one at a time is too expensive and takes too long. The goal of this session is to identify the strategies that most cost-effectively reduce risk over time. How do we craft an effective application security program using a combination of tools, standard controls, consultants, in-house teams, testers and auditors, and training. How can we manage the cost and risk over time – what metrics have proven to be effective in practice?
