The ROI of developer-driven security - A case study in security-focused enterprises


In challenging economic times, organizations look closely at the financial return on investment for any new technology. Making investments in security is even more important and therefore even more scrutinized. According to the National Vulnerability Database, new vulnerabilities have grown more than 210% between 2015 - 2021. The “shift-left” approach has not been well adopted yet the benefits for companies that make the shift are well proven - 9 out of 10 of those that have adopted a shift-left approach have realized real reductions in vulnerabilities with hard dollar savings attached to those reductions.

Derek Fisher, Head of Product Security at a large financial institution and author of “The Application Security Handbook” and the “Alicia Connected” series, will detail his approach to proving the value of security upskilling for his development teams.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • An ROI methodology that ties vulnerability reduction to secure coding training
  • The steps needed to foster an environment that encourages developers to code correctly and securely
  • Industry standards and best practices that produce hard dollar cost savings from developer efficiencies
  • The importance of increasing security awareness within your developer communities
