Veracode to Host Webinar on Merging Network and Application Risk Assessment Techniques for Powerful Vulnerability Discovery
BURLINGTON, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the leader in cloud-based application security testing, today
announced details of the upcoming webinar "Crafting Super-Powered Risk
Assessments," co-hosted by Chris Wysopal, co-founder, CTO and CISO of
Veracode, and Gordon MacKay, executive vice president and chief
technology officer at Digital Defense, Inc. Attendees will learn how
enterprises can better understand and reduce security risks when
assessing the state of network and application security.
Who: Gordon MacKay, EVP and CTO, Digital Defense, Inc.

application assessments respectively contribute to the overall security
architecture of an organization, but by combining the two crucial tasks,
enterprises can benefit exponentially-gaining increased visibility and
responding more rapidly to vulnerabilities.
Join Gordon MacKay and Chris Wysopal as they discuss the benefits and
challenges of network and application risk assessment methods. They will
discuss how to combine these two methods for a super-charged risk
Additional discussion topics include:
The impact of third party applications on the software supply chain.
The actions an enterprise should take when web applications and web
infrastructure are found to be outdated, and the unnecessary security
risk they bring to the enterprise.
How to determine which applications within your company's software
inventory should be tested.
When: Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. ET
