Virtual Event Series

Hosted By

HCL Software

Date: Tuesday, 16th March 2021

Time: 10:30am – 11:30am (SGT)




Synopsis and overview of the session

The shift to a remote workforce in 2020 has highlighted the need for an approach to app development that has security built in from inception. In the current digital landscape, security is essential to achieving business resiliency and maintaining quality while developing at the speed of DevOps. Prioritizing speed without security in app development can lead to an uptick in critical vulnerabilities with disastrous results. To avoid this, organizations must address security earlier in the software development life cycle.

How are CISOs improving processes to integrate security into DevOps, and what challenges do they face? What are the practices, techniques and strategies can be used to achieve better application security? What are the key trends for 2021 and beyond?

This exclusive virtual executive roundtable on Emerging AppSec Trends in 2021 and Beyond will provide answers to these and other critical questions.

Focus Network, in partnership with HCL Software, will be bringing leading IT security executives to discuss emerging AppSec trends in 2021 and beyond with a handful of senior executives and market leaders in an informal, virtual setting from which you will emerge with new strategies and solutions you can immediately put to work.
