According to Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report, one of the leading causes of data breaches over the past two years has been vulnerable applications. Yet, analytics collected by Veracode from more than 200,000 application risk assessments over the last 18 months found a wide disparity in how the problem is addressed across industries. In this session, Chris Wysopal, CTO and CISO at Veracode, will share details, including:

  • Reliance on outdated programming languages has hamstrung government security.
  • The financial services and manufacturing industries’ attention to software security pays off.
  • Given the large amount of sensitive data collected by healthcare organizations, it’s concerning that 80 percent of healthcare applications exhibit cryptographic issues.
  • Significant risk is introduced by the software supply chain across all industries.
