OnDemand Webinar | An Executive Order to Elevate Software Security
In May of this year President Biden issued an Executive Order on Improving Cybersecurity and new requirements are being rolled out to both government agencies and suppliers. This new order touches on many aspects of functional cybersecurity, but for the first time, specifically outlines the impact of developers, and the need for them to have verified security skills and awareness, moving beyond ‘tick-the-box’ training that fulfills a bare minimum operational requirement. Will shifting from outdated practices towards these new standards ultimately be the turning point towards a major reduction in cybersecurity vulnerabilities and the creation of higher-quality code? Join us as we discuss:
- The biggest changes in government cybersecurity over the past decade
- Predictions on how the cybersecurity EO will influence software security cultural shifts beyond federal government departments
- Thoughts on what still needs to be done to achieve a new, higher standard of cyber defense
- Insights into how developers can be empowered and stay engaged on security best practices, especially in large organizations with an abundance of red tape.
