SANS Survey on Application Security Programs and Practices
Learn what 488 IT professionals have to say in the 2014 Application Security Programs and Practices survey. Results indicate an increase in number of organizations with a formal application security program in place. Approximately 83% of respondents (up from 66%) have an Appsec program in place, and more than 37% (up from 33%) have a program that has been operating for more than five years.
In the survey, more than 35% of respondents test the security of their business-critical applications on an ongoing basis, up from 23% in last year's survey. And, encouragingly, only a small percentage (fewer than 3%) of respondents left application security to chance and did not test at all.
The survey also found that a lack of qualified staff and lack of skills are seen as the major inhibitors to instituting Appsec programs. Learn these and other valuable and surprising insights into the challenges that organizations face today in implementing a successful Appsec program.
