Hard coding secrets–usernames, passwords, tokens, API keys and more–is a risky practice that’s been around for as long as developers have been writing code. This problem is far from solved. In fact, hardcoded secrets are increasing in prevalence due to modern microservice-based architectures in which comments and services need to authenticate with each other securely and establish authorization mechanisms.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to build an effective secrets management program using a maturity model that helps you assess your current capabilities and plan your next steps.
