AppSec Bites: What Opportunities Does Remote Working Create for AppSec Teams? (Part 3)

A joint blog post from ThreadFix and Veracode.

It’s no secret that the pandemic has shifted the operational mindset of many organizations as we adapted to a fully remote workspace. In additional to this, many businesses were subjected to tighter budgets, compelling them to find ways to be more efficient and cost effective. The automation of everyday processes, in an effort to make all aspects of the business more efficient, has proved to be a popular choice for businesses in all sectors. This involves a digital transformation, one which was perhaps in the cards for many businesses prior to the pandemic.

Was the pandemic the push many needed to take the next step or a catalyst that has caused the surge in digital transformation? A bit of both, according to the Director of Product Management at Veracode, Tim Jarrett.

In the recent episode of our AppSec Bites Podcast, we discuss how the pandemic has changed the way people work and approach DevOps and application vulnerability management. Remote work has inadvertently given us better business perspective in making AppSec part of the development process and with that, more motivation for an end-to-end between DevSec teams.

We’re doubling down on automation. With businesses looking to the cloud for basic operations, along with new ways of conducting business remotely, there is a lot to talk about when it comes to the massive shifts we are seeing in business practices.
