Synopsis and overview of the session
Like 2020, 2021 was a transformational year for retail, compelling many retailers to take a different approach as stores closed and consumers were told to shop from home. Many retailers had to rapidly transition into a digital-first approach, integrating technological adaption that would normally take years to incorporate in just a matter of months. Rapid transitions such as these can often lead to potential vulnerabilities in the application security framework.
- Embedding Security and Compliance at every step of Software Life Cycle by utilizing new capabilities in application security testing and language expansion
- Integrations required to Continuously Test while your Online store is running and using IAST techniques to identify/fix vulnerabilities without halting online presence
- Implementation of a Risk Based application security management approach
