Jeff Williams - CTO & Co-founder of Contrast Security
Larry Maccherone - Distinguished Engineer, DevSecOps Transformation at Comcast

Patrick Spencer, Ph.D. - Editor-in-Chief, Inside AppSec Podcast

Listen to this moderated webinar panel to learn why Agile and DevOps requires a new approach to application security. This includes a cultural transformation that touches on everything that is needed for today’s modern software development environment—from strategies for building a strong security posture, to continuous protection through the software development life cycle, to automating workflows. 

Leveraging their first-hand experiences, Jeff and Larry will cover topics such as:
  • How to build a modern AppSec Program that meets Agile and DevOps requirements
  • How to enable developers to remediate vulnerabilities at scale without code halts
  • How to evaluate risks of open source and strategies for mitigating them

Jeff and Larry will also discuss the “big picture” of AppSec to help attendees understand the tailwinds behind Agile and DevOps and why and how AppSec must align with those demands. 

If you watch one webinar this quarter, make sure this is it. This webinar is a jam-packed, one-stop session on the macro and micro trends of Agile, DevOps, and DevSecOps that you simply cannot miss.
