How Security Vulnerabilities Are Introduced In the Application Development Process – And How to Stop It

Every day, enterprises deploy application code that contains critical security vulnerabilities – because those flaws went overlooked or unrecognized by the application development team. How do these vulnerabilities escape the development process?  In this Dark Reading webinar, top application security experts outline some of the most commonly-occurring vulnerabilities and offer insight on how and why these flaws are introduced during software development. Attendees will learn about tools and practices for eliminating these vulnerabilities, and receive advice and recommendations on how to improve the development process to find and fix application security flaws – before the code is deployed.
