Application security is a concern that touches everyone, whether you are developing, deploying, or using software. Personal and government data, as well as agency and critical infrastructure operations, are at an increased risk of compromise due to proliferating and increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. Software flaws, in particular, have been the gateways to recent cyberattacks and breaches that targeted government agencies and businesses worldwide.
However, investing in a better AppSec program can prevent breaches altogether. Yet, research shows developers need training in integrating AppSec across all their processes. According to a Checkmarx survey, only about 17 percent of AppSec managers said their AppSec training is “very effective,” and 13 percent deemed the training to be “completely ineffective.”
