DevSecOps Definition: New Challenges, New To-Do’s

Dan Cornell, CTO of Denim Group, an application security company, calls known vulnerabilities “silent killers.”

“You can’t expect every organization to have the level of inspection to proactively catch subtle and complicated vulnerabilities,” said Cornell. “But the ‘silent killers’ are the more mundane vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting and SQL injection, which have existed and been out in the wild in their own code. These are being taken advantage of by cyber criminals and could be found by automated testing.”
