Bridging the Gap
The application security community has been "pushing left" for several years. The idea behind pushing left is to have application security experts and activities more tightly integrated within the software development process. By integrating security activities throughout the development process, organizations foster more exceptional capabilities to minimize the risk of introducing security vulnerabilities into their software. Organizations have realized the value of adopting such security integration strategies. This realization has forced a critical turning point within the application security community.
Now security specialists are expected to work closely with extremely talented software architects and developers to design, implement, and integrate software security solutions. Unfortunately for the security community, this relationship is failing. Most application security specialists do not have the real-world development experience required to effectively "push left." Organizations are encouraged to expect more out of their application security experts. Talk to your developers! Ask them, "are you getting actionable guidance from our security team?" You may be surprised at their response.
