The State of Application Security: key findings - a webcast from Forrester & Microsoft

HI all - Doug here

Earlier this year, Microsoft has worked with Forrester Consulting and Dr. Chenxi Wang, analyst on secure development of applications, to assess the current state of the security of applications among the largest companies in the United States and the Canada 150.  I discussed in February when we publish it on this blog. Report has proven to have a lot of very interesting data, that which some we talked about earlier when we published State of the application - security A Forrester Consulting Thought Leadership paper commissioned by Microsoft on our Web site.

Microsoft is hosting a webcast on Monday, May 23 at 11 PAH with Mr. Wang talk about the results and recommendations based on the information contained in the study.  I will follow her presentation with a brief presentation of my own discussing the similar benefits that we have seen in our interactions with other organizations. Both presentations will demonstrate that the SDL as a process from end to end that engages all stakeholders within an organization can have a significant impact.

The current context of security and compliance is the engine of many organizations look at their own secure application development practices.  The results of this study and the information in the retransmission can help provide key elements of the justification for the company to start a secure application development program which is more than just compliance.  The findings of this study are very clear that there is a commercial advantage not only doing better security of the application, but also in the King of the evolution of business around the software development culture.  It is an excellent opportunity for your business decision makers to hear the facts and help you make your case.

Come and listen to and have the opportunity to ask questions.  You can register here, Business Insights Webcast: the State of application security: key findings.
