What your DevOps team needs to know: 4 lessons from exploited vulnerabilities

While the OWASP Top-10 is a good start for a list of software vulnerability classes that need coverage, every development team has a different list. What is important is for the company to make sure it has good coverage—through tools and processes—of the vulnerability classes on the developers’ list, said Dan Cornell, chief technology officer of Denim Group, an application-security consultancy.

While companies are trying to push more security checks into integrated development environments (IDEs), they should only “shift left” those tools that retain a high-level of coverage while not disrupting development, he said.
