Top 10 DevSecOps best practices for building secure software

Ready to transition your organization to DevSecOps but unsure of where to begin? Get started with our top 10 DevSecOps best practices. By: Sneha Kokil, associate principal consultant, and Arvind Balaji, associate principal consultant, at Synopsys. While the software industry celebrates a decade of DevOps, there’s an increasing drive toward adopting DevSecOps and making security a part of software from early on.


Executive Order on Cybersecurity Is Imminent: It's Been a Long Time Coming

Following President Biden’s address to Congress last night in which he referenced cybersecurity as a priority twice, news is circulating today that the executive order on cybersecurity is imminent. This news comes as a much awaited and long overdue step towards creating standardization and structure around cybersecurity.

Implementing DevSecOps in the DoD by Nicolas Chaillan Failover Conf 2021

Delivering software quickly and securely is important for every organization, but it's even more important at the US Department of Defence (DoD) where reliability directly impacts national security. Nicolas Chaillan (Chief Software Officer, US Air Force) will discuss the DoD Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative—an initiative he leads along with the DOD’s Chief Information Officer that brings automated software tools, services and standards to DoD programs. He'll also share about Platform One, the Air Force's DoD-wide DevSecOps Enterprise Level Service that provides managed IT services capabilities, on-boarding, support, and baked-in zero trust security. This insight from operating at the most rigorous level will help you level up your own organization.

How a Microsoft Engineer Implemented Veracode for a Large Azure Project

With the need to produce innovative software faster than ever, and cyberattacks not slowing down, it’s no surprise that, for projects large and small, ensuring the security of your code at every step is key. But if software engineers want to meet these everyday demands with success, it’s important to understand how different security scanning types fit in throughout the development process, and how the needs of your team might impact scans.


Practical Steps for Fixing Flaws and Creating Fewer Vulnerabilities

All security flaws should be fixed, right? In an ideal world, yes, all security flaws should be fixed as soon as they’re discovered. But for most organizations, fixing all security flaws isn’t feasible. A practical step your organization can – and should – take is to prioritize which flaws should be fixed first.


Reporting Live From Collision Conference 2021: Part Two!

If you caught part one of our recap series on this year’s Collision conference, you know we covered a roundtable talk hosted by Veracode’s own Chris Wysopal. The talk focused on the risks of AI and machine learning, delving into discussions of how to manage the security aspects of these future-ready technologies — especially when it comes down to consumer privacy.


Are You Targeting These Risky Red Zone Vulnerabilities?

Modern software development is full of security risk. Factors like lingering security debt, insecure open source libraries, and irregular scanning cadences can all impact how many flaws dawdle in your code, leading to higher rates of dangerous bugs in susceptible and popular languages.


Developer Security Champions Rule the DevSecOps Revolution

DevSecOps has fundamentally changed the way in which organizations approach security in modern software development. The role of developer security champion was created to meet the need for security to be tightly integrated into DevOps and DevSecOps practices. Read on to learn more about what developer security champions are and how they help promote secure coding best practices as organizations work toward continuous integration and delivery.
