The importance of shifting security left in the software supply chain and the role of security professionals in enabling developers to write secure code.
  • Policy is code and security professionals or tools can help developers integrate security into their workflows
  • Understanding the configuration of the whole infrastructure as code is becoming more important
  • The network also applies to the software supply chain and needs to be looked at differently
  • Transparency and clear communication between app developers and security professionals is crucial
  • The role of security professionals is changing to be more strategic and consultative
  • Developers do not need to become security experts but may need to upskill
  • Automated tools like Acurix can help developers write secure code without needing to understand the full background of security
The SolarWinds attack showed that just looking at the code itself is not enough and that the weakest link in the supply chain can be targeted. Facebook also experienced software failures due to network misconfigurations. It is important to have transparency and clear communication between app developers and security professionals to ensure that policies are understood and followed.
