How to Enable Developers to Deliver Secure Code

The recording of the webinar on the benefits of applying security testing as early as possible in software development are now available online.

Security testing is an important part of any security development life-cycle (SDLC) and, thus, should be a part of any secure software development life-cycle. Still, security testing is often understood by an activity done by security testers in the time between “end of development” and “offering the product to customers”.

Learning from traditional testing that the fixing of bugs is the more costly the later it is done in development, we believe that security testing should be integrated into the daily development activities.

Based on the SDLC of a large software vendor, we will present the benefits of early security testing and discuss what is necessary to achieve a “security testing as development activity” approach.

The webinar was hosted by Checkmarx.
