What Going All-Remote Taught Us About Appsec and Testing Shortfalls


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

 The Covid-19 pandemic led to a lot of tech companies converting to remote teams almost overnight, and for some this may even become the norm. While conferencing such as Zoom are widely known for substituting for face-to-face meetings, it's much less appreciated how the disruption has increased asynchronous communication approaches as people are not always available online at the same time.

Shifting to asynchronous communication has shown up some weaknesses companies may have had, particularly when it came to security and testing. If a company's approach to these had been more manual and revolved around the relevant people being co-located or in constant direct communication, then this lack of process or automation can result in increased risk.

So as we adjust to new ways of working, how do you ensure that your appsec procedures are designed to withstand any changes in your team dynamics ?
Join this session and leave with insights on:
  • What did going involuntarily remote reveal to us about existing security and testing weaknesses?
  • Practical examples of ad-hoc or manual security vs automation
  • What should change forever even if/once we go back to "normal"?

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
