Ponemon Says We Need to Close the Cultural Divide Between Application Security and Developers

Dr. Larry Ponemon and Susan Jayson of Ponemon Institute discuss the findings of their recent research study, “Revealing the Cultural Divide Between Application Security and Development,” sponsored by ZeroNorth.

A security risk that many organizations are not dealing with is the cultural divide between application security and developers. In this research sponsored by ZeroNorth, we refer to the cultural divide as the moment when AppSec and developers lack a common vision for delivering software capabilities required by the business—securely. As a result, AppSec and developers are less likely to work effectively as a team and achieve the goals of building and delivering code in a timely manner with security integrated throughout the application development process.
