Don’t Let Security Trip You Up—DevOps and Security

Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Static analysis tools can’t understand business logic. Security analysts doing manual secure code review can trace business logic but can’t hope to trace all tainted user data in a complex application. Penetration testing can’t find architecture issues. No single testing method finds all the vulnerabilities firms want to prevent. Looking for critical vulnerabilities in any modern application requires multiple testing techniques.

The correct approach to these challenges is to shift the focus from reactive security to proactive security. Instead of focusing on new ways to find bugs already in the code base, you should address the root cause—by building expertise and providing the information needed to PREVENT bugs from entering the codebase.

This webinar will provide actionable insight into:

  • Meeting DevSecOps challenges
  • Building security into your DevOps SDLC
  • Integrating and scaling the right tools in the DevOps pipeline
  • Coordinating with various teams to ensure that the process is well-defined, tools are properly configured, and developers are ready to fix issues when the build breaks

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event.

You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
