[Live Webinar] Shift Left or Collaborate with Security?

Hey folks! Hope you're all doing well.

🔗 Registrations

In this webinar Laura Bell (Founder & CEO of SafeStack, co-author of Agile Application Security and Security for Everyone) and myself will discuss the topic of ‘Shifting Left’ when it comes to software security, the challenges it can present, and better models that exist to share the load of security in today’s agile SDLCs.

There’s been lots of talk of ‘Shift Left’ when it comes to security - allowing outnumbered software security teams to move security tasks onto development teams, earlier in the lifecycle, to increase speed and scale of AppSec tasks. Many companies have taken steps to shift security left, but ran into problems of increasing developer friction and adding no real value to security programs.

With many security teams busy, and software releases speeding up, there’s such a strong need for security to run smoothly and at pace with development & CI/CD pipelines, being better weaved into developer practices. Here, Laura and Gary talk through how SafeStack and Uleska have become partners to help companies improve their training and centralisation of security tools in the SDLC, in ways that focus on collaboration and sharing expertise between teams, over passing out security responsibilities to dev teams.

This webinar covers:

  • What’s wrong (and right) with ‘Shift-Left’ security, where are the pain points the industry is seeing?

  • How you can weave security throughout your SDLC from idea to maintenance with SafeStack’s ongoing secure development training, including their latest course, Introduction to DevSecOps.

  • How can you bring more collaboration into security checks (tools) so that security and development teams can amplify their skills and increase the speed and quality of security, without slowing anyone down?

  • Your Q&A, what questions do you have on software security training and automation?

Have questions now? Send them to with the subject ‘Webinar questions’ and we’ll be sure to answer them during the presentation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
