Abstract

Traditionally, cybersecurity has focused on finding and removing vulnerabilities. This is like driving backward down the highway using your rearview mirror. Most breaches are due to defects in design or code; thus, the only way to truly address the issue is to design and build more secure solutions. In this webcast, Tim Chick discusses how security is an integral aspect of the entire software lifecycle as a result of following deliberate engineering practices focused on reducing security risks through the use of software assurance techniques.

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • The importance of cybersecurity and examples of when security has failed
  • Qualities to look at when evaluating third-party software
  • The relationship between quality and security
  • Engineering techniques used throughout the development lifecycle to reduce cyber risks
