Featured Speaker Chenxi Wang to Provide Insight on the Vulnerabilities of Third-Party Developed Software
BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Veracode, Inc., the leader in cloud-based application security testing, today announced details of the upcoming webinar, “Show Me The Security: Mitigating Risks With Vendor-Supplied Software,” hosted by guest speaker Chenxi Wang, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. Attendees will learn how enterprises can better understand and reduce security risks associated with the use of third-party developed software.
Who: Chenxi Wang, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc.
What: Software and development outsourcing is a common practice in today’s business environment – many organizations have an extensive amount of third-party sourced code in their software ecosystem. Cloud and mobile deployments accelerate the growth of third-party applications. According to Veracode’s latest State of Software Security Report, less than 1 in 5 enterprises are conducting security assessments of their third-party vendors. Many enterprises understand the risk, but unfortunately do not have the time, budget, or internal resources to run a meaningful vendor application security compliance program.
Join guest speaker Chenxi Wang, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., as she describes how enterprises can better understand and reduce security risks associated with the use of vendor-supplied software and provides a step-by-step guide for building an effective vendor application security compliance program.
Additional discussion topics include:
- The risk enterprises are taking as a result of increased investment in outsourced, commercial, SaaS, mobile and open source applications.
- The effect on organizations of a growing reliance on third-party developed code and how to build a scalable program for securing the software supply chain.
- The challenges third-party software developers face as a result of economic pressures to produce software at breakneck speeds without enough training in secure development practices.
When: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. ET
