“Version control” sounds a bit like something used by people scattered around the country trying to collaborate on a story. But it’s a crucial part of software development, especially in the DevSecOps era, where you need to ensure that the speed of the CI/CD pipeline doesn’t outrun quality and security. That’s because software development isn’t like an assembly line where a product moves from one group of workers to the next in a perfectly coordinated sequence.

Open source software is now used in nearly every organization, which makes it critical to know your code. Learn how an SCA tool can help you. There’s an ongoing sea change in how developers ensure a more secure software development life cycle (SDLC). “Shift left” is the notion that creating high-quality software begins with planning and continues through the development and testing stages to actual deployment.

The goal of ISO SAE 21434 is to build upon functional safety standard ISO 26262 and provide a framework similar to it for the entire life cycle of road vehicles. The major components of this new standard include security management, project-dependent cyber security management, continuous cyber security activities, associated risk assessment methods, and cyber security within the concept product development and post development stages of road vehicles.

If you care about software security—and you should, since to be in business today means that no matter what you do or produce, you’re also a software company—you should be interested in the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM). It can serve as a roadmap to better security.

Security and development teams are increasingly adopting DevOps methodologies. However, traditional security tools bolted onto the development process often cause friction, decrease velocity, and require time-consuming manual processes. Manual tools and legacy AppSec approaches limit security teams’ ability to deliver the timely and actionable security feedback needed to drive improvements at the pace of modern development.

Organizations are increasingly agile today, producing and deploying software applications faster than ever before. But this requires all the elements in the software development life cycle (SDLC) to work together cohesively. Security practices in the SDLC become especially important, given that more than half of security flaws result from preventable coding mistakes. Ensuring that developers are on board with security practices is even more critical to improve the process efficiency.

The first software development team I worked on operated on the follow mantra: Make it work. Then, make it fast. Then, make it elegant (maybe). Meaning, don’t worry about performance optimizations until your code actually does what it’s supposed to do, and don’t worry about code maintainability until after you know it both works and performs well. Users generally have no idea how maintainable the code is, but they do know if the application is broken or slow.

You've realized you need to do a better job of tracking and managing your open source as well as the vulnerabilities and licenses associated with it. How hard can vulnerability management be? Do you really need special tools? After all, the license and vulnerability information is publicly available. Once you get a list of open source components and do some Google searching, you should be all set, right?

Just like most software assets contain open source, modern software applications commonly link to external web services via APIs. But developers using web services might not have a suitable agreement to do so, and they may be inadvertently signing their companies up to terms of service. This white paper covers the types of risk associated with web services and how they can affect an M&A transaction.

More than 11.5 billion records with sensitive information were breached between January 2005 and January 2019 ( If your business stores, processes, or transmits cardholder data, it's imperative that you implement standard security procedures and technologies to prevent the theft of this sensitive information. Start by ensuring you're in compliance with the technical and operational requirements set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
