Enterprises embark on Agile and DevOps journeys to improve time-to-market and overall operating efficiency. However if security is not a part of your journey, no transformation is complete as it will continue to drag on productivity and create bottlenecks. Yet despite support from both Development and Security for a shared-services model for Application Security, teams have failed to effectively integrate security into today’s rapid development processes leaving organizations open not only to cyber risk, but overall business risk as they play AppSec roulette when shipping their products...
