Synopsis and overview of the session
Digital transformation continues to change today’s business model, and with this comes a range of new opportunities and challenges. The integration of application security is changing how businesses operate. One of the areas it’s transforming is the collaboration and work from a single conversation. Instead of managing multiple threads across disparate tools it is improving communication internally. Protecting against these threats requires a proactive, integrated, and automated approach. It also requires companies to adjust their strategies as the threat landscape continues to evolve.
Using application security tools that integrate into your application development, can help make this process simpler and more effective.
Focus Network, in partnership with GitLab, will be bringing leading IT and security executives together to discuss the new challenges and solutions for transforming IT and application security to meet and exceed business expectations. During the lunch, we’ll be discussing key topics such as:
- Innovative ways to drive culture change within your organization
- Streamline application delivery, and foster continuous improvement on a day to day basis
- Discuss best practices to succeed in today’s digital landscape by using automation to unlock velocity
- Methods to avoid spending too much time complicating your application security
- The importance of monitoring key metrics to ensure success
