As organizations move to DevOps, the demand for faster software releases increases the chances of vulnerable code making its way into production. The good news is that coding errors leading to vulnerabilities are extremely preventable when on-demand, interactive secure coding lessons are readily available. This presentation will explain how modern AppSec awareness and training can bridge the gap between an organization’s secure software initiatives and the lack of secure coding best practices.
