Up until the last few years, IT security managers have spent billions of dollars in securing the parameters of their organizations to keep out those who would bring harm to their internal networks. However in recent years, there is more awareness around a particularly insidious threat. It's the insider threat. According to CERT, of the insiders who have either maliciously or accidently exposed critical information on a network; 90% percent of them were given administrative rights to critical systems.

Jeff Ennis, Solutions Architect
Veracode, Inc.

Abstract
Application vulnerabilities are steeply on the rise. At $350 billion per year software is the largest manufacturing industry in the world yet there are no uniform standards or insight into security, risk or liability of the final product. The development environment is becoming increasingly complex application origin ranges from internally developed code, outsourced, 3rd party, Open Source, and Commercial Off the Shelf software. Ensuring that these entities are creating secure software is becoming a daunting task. Lots of emphasis is placed on IT controls, patching, etc, but the new attack vector is your application. During this presentation we will recap the state of software security today, discuss some initiatives which are requiring application risk management, and provide suggestions on how you can begin managing the application risk at your organization.
