The pandemic isn’t the only thing shaking up development organizations. Application security is a top concern and security work is “shifting left” and becoming more intertwined with development. In this podcast, Security Ledger Editor in Chief Paul Roberts talks about it with Jonathan Hunt, Vice President of Security at the firm GitLab.
Left Shifted Security
Security has long been about building walls and keeping ‘bad guys’ on the other side of them. No longer. With the embrace of DEVOPS methodologies, security is “shifting left” – into the development pipeline. What does that mean for the information security industry and the practice of cyber security? We explore those questions in this ongoing podcast series.
In this episode of the podcast (#187), sponsored by Virsec, we talk with journalist and author Cory Doctorow of BoingBoing.net about the recent GE Filtergate incident and how DRM is invading our homes. Also, Satya Gupta the Chief Technology Officer of the firm VirSec joins us to talk about how application runtime monitoring is gaining traction in the age of DevSecOps and left-shifted security.
In this Spotlight Podcast, we speak with David Brumley, the Chief Executive Officer at the security firm ForAllSecure and an expert on the use of machine learning and automation to cyber security problems. We talk about the growing demand for security automation tools and how the chronic cyber security talent shortage in North America and elsewhere is driving investment in automation.
