Application security (AppSec) is an integral part of our products’ security and our company’s reputation.
Wiki definition: Application security encompasses measures taken to improve the security of an application often by finding, fixing, and preventing security vulnerabilities... at different stages of an application's lifecycle such as design, development, deployment, upgrade, maintenance.
The security of IT systems and infrastructure is owned by IT and DevOps, respectively. However, today there’s no clear owner for driving application-level security or guiding the teams on best practices to follow.
This document defines the role and responsibilities of an AppSec lead and the required skills for such a role.
The AppSec lead will work closely with development and DevOps teams to ensure our applications are secured.
