Code Dx’s Chris Horn to Speak at AppSec Europe on Managing Application Security Programs

NORTHPORT, N.Y., June 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Code Dx, Inc., provider of an award-winning application security solution that automates and accelerates the discovery, prioritization, and management of software vulnerabilities, today announced that Chris Horn will be presenting at AppSec Europe in London, England on July 6 at 10:15 a.m. on “A View from Above: How Organizations are Managing Their AppSec Programs”. Mr. Horn helps guide product development at Code Dx as a Researcher at Secure Decisions, the parent company of Code Dx and an R&D division of Applied Visions.

“This presentation will arm AppSec leaders with knowledge to clearly understand what they should be paying attention to—and measuring—in order to execute successful AppSec programs,” said Horn.

In the presentation, Horn will share his insights and observations from a study* conducted in 2017 of AppSec practitioners to help better understand the problems they face. He will also share his thoughts on goals AppSec leaders should set, questions they should ask, metrics they should measure, and tools they should use.

Assuring application security is much more than a technology problem – it requires the actions of numerous people, which means organization and process. Roles and responsibilities must be defined, budgets must be approved; people need to be hired, educated and enabled to develop skills; culture needs to be created; tools need to be selected and acquired; and policies and processes must be defined.

Horn used his skills as a security researcher for Secure Decisions to conduct this study, which was partially funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“At Code Dx, we have insight into all types and sizes of organizations taking actions to secure their software from vulnerabilities,” added Horn. “Our enterprise solution helps them to proactively manage the AppSec testing process throughout the entire product development lifecycle. The results of the study we performed will be used to provide these organizations with additional metrics and displays for communicating the status of application security up and down the chain.”
