    Application Security in the age of DevSecOps with WhiteSource

    The advent of DevOps was hailed as a means to have all aspects of application deployment handled by one single team. However, over time, concerns surrounding security have begun to arise. Many feel that security should be more of a priority for Development & DevOps teams, particularly in regard to applications. On the one hand, apps are a modern necessity to drive business success. However, on the other hand, they come with a host of security problems that need special attention, necessitating DevSecOps in turn.
    Joining us to lend his expertise on this matter is Jeff Martin, Senior Director of Product at WhiteSource. Firstly, Jeff explains whose responsibility AppSec actually is and how organisations ultimately create DevSecOps. He then demonstrates what the typical ‘DevSecOps’ workflow should look like. Finally, he outlines the benefits of open source tools and how important security procedures are for businesses and their DevOps efforts.

    IT Security Policy Management and Automation with FireMon

    As security requirements evolve, so must the policies surrounding them. Today, businesses are responsible for updating policies consistently across all relevant security devices regardless of function and supplier.

Thus, organisations must turn to specialist products that harness automation as a means to cover more diverse security requirements and enhance security analytics and intelligence.
    In this podcast, Bob Tarzey speaks with Andrew Lintell, Vice President and Managing Director, EMEA at FireMon. Andrew introduces the FireMon brand and how diverse the devices are that such vendors cater for. He also details the role that vendors like FireMon play in SecDevOps. As well as this, Andrew explains how FireMon helps in ensuring that organisations’ security systems are compliant and how it can prove this to the relevant regulatory bodies.

    The use of external threat intelligence for proactive IT security with IntSights

    Keeping your business safe requires a proactive analysis of potential online threats. This requires more than details of latest malware and software vulnerabilities. Intelligence is also required about what is happening in cyberspace that may represent a specific threat to your business. The deepest recesses of the web need probing to gathering this intelligence. Not just the clear web, the websites that we all use on a day-to-day basis, but also the dark and, where possible, deep web.
    In this podcast, Bob Tarzey speaks with Charity Wright, Cyber Threat Intelligence Advisor and Etay Maor, Chief Security Officer at IntSights. Firstly, they outline some use cases for external threat intelligence and the types of risks that can be mitigated. Then, they discuss how to probe the dark web in terms of identifying threats but also using analysis effectively. Finally, they explore how IntSights uses this analysis for mitigating threats.
