Findings and Takeaways from Contrast Labs Bimonthly AppSec Intelligence Report

Speakers: Patrick Spencer, David Lindner, Brian Glas


Listen to this webinar to learn about key findings and takeaways from the latest Contrast Labs' Bimonthly AppSec Intelligence Report in this webinar.

This moderated webinar will cover AppSec vulnerability and attacks trends for the first two months of the year. Some of the key discussion areas include:

  • Vulnerabilities that are found in a subset of applications but absent in others
  • The numbers of attacks an application received on average
  • Prevalence of vulnerabilities versus the likelihood that they will be exploited
  • Attacks on known vulnerabilities in open-source code
  • A "watch list" of vulnerabilities that require special scrutiny
  • And more...

The Contrast Labs’ Bimonthly AppSec Intelligence Report is the only report in the industry that combines insights about vulnerabilities, library issues, and attacks in a single report. Others may give you separate slices of intelligence; we give you the whole enchilada.

Our two presenters will be joined by the Editor-in-Chief for Contrast’s Inside AppSec Podcast, Patrick Spencer, who will review the report’s findings with the two subject-matter panelists and pinpoint actionable takeaways for the audience. You will walk away with an in-depth and actionable understanding of the report’s findings.
