"How Billion Dollar Enterprises Manage Application Security at Scale"

Altaz Valani
Research Director
Security Compass

Security Compass recently completed a comprehensive research study by surveying companies across multiple industries with the goal of discovering how large, complex organizations address application security at scale.  The majority of respondents surveyed were multinational organizations who reported annual earnings greater than $1 billion USD.  Through this new research study, we have gleamed novel insights on how large organizations manage application security at scale.  Through this presentation, we will reveal aggregated insights, industry trends, and best practices that illuminate how organizations are addressing application security at scale, so that you may apply and compare these learnings to the state of application security at your own organization.

Altaz Valani is the Research Director at Security Compass responsible for managing the overall research vision and team. Prior to joining Security Compass, Altaz was a Senior Research Director at Info-Tech Research Group providing CIOs, IT managers, Directors, and Senior Managers with trusted advice and analysis around application development – including Agile, Cloud, Mobile, and the overall SDLC. Other past roles include Senior Manager at KPMG, and various positions where he worked side by side with senior-level stakeholders to drive business value through software development.
