Developers know how to build applications. But they need the tools and insights to build them securely. With software vulnerability now the fourth most common cause of external breaches, the need to connect the worlds of development and security is more urgent than ever.
One of the best ways to bridge this gap is by creating a security-conscious dev team, appointing Developer Security Champions to act as a point of contact throughout the secure software development lifecycle.
In outlining the five steps towards creating a Developer Security Champions program, this complimentary analyst report by Forrester provides answers to the following questions:
- Why should developers care about application security?
- What’s a Developer Security Champion?
- How can I easily identify, train, and support Security Champions within my business?
- How can I foster long-term working relationships between the security and development teams?
- In what way do Security Champions drive long-term success and enable secure software development?
Empower your engineering teams
Deepfactor allows engineering teams to quickly discover and resolve security issues, supply chain risks, and compliance violations during development.
Our open-source scanning software includes seamless cloud native deployment, with developers able to drop Deepfactor directly into the container or Kubernetes cluster. We drive the adoption of DevSecops, integrating AppSec into the CI/CD pipeline to reduce noisy alerts and prioritize first and 3rd party code that can’t be found with static code scanning.
With unparalleled visibility into application vulnerabilities through Deepfactor’s simple, integrated platform, you avoid runtime risks, accelerate productivity, and reduce alert fatigue. This way, your engineering and development teams are empowered to develop secure and compliant cloud native applications.
