Veracode, Inc., the leader in cloud-based application security testing, today announced details of the upcoming webinar, “Web & Mobile Apps: The Silent Assassins in Your Cyber Security Strategy,” hosted by Erik Peterson, director of product strategy at Veracode. Attendees will learn how much risk they introduce into their cyber security programs when downloading new Internet-connected applications and what they can do to mitigate attacks.
Who: Erik Peterson, director of product strategy, Veracode
What: An organization’s IT infrastructure is comprised of thousands of applications and at its center resides sensitive company data, and whether it is transmitted over the web or via mobile devices, ensuring secure data requires ensuring secure applications. While the accessibility of applications is critical for the productivity of customers and employees, accessibility also makes applications fundamentally vulnerable to attacks. Security teams must evolve their systems, polices, and development strategies in order to keep up with these threats.
Erik Peterson, director of product strategy for Veracode will discuss the potential scale of the threats presented by BYOD, the ever-expanding application perimeter, and how security teams should mitigate attacks and data loss caused by weaknesses in critical applications.
Additional discussion topics include:
- Understanding how much risk you’re introducing with new Internet-connected apps
- Understanding what you can do to mitigate hacks and data loss facilitated by vulnerabilities in your critical software applications
- How to evolve your systems, policies, and development strategy with the pace of change in the app world to stay secure in the future.
When: Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. ET
