New eBook highlights potential challenges for CISOs

Enterprise SecurityMore NewsSoftware

Synopsys has published an eBook which chronicles six security issues a CISO might face – and offers advice on how to prevent them.

The central character of the eBook – which is titled The CISO’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – is Alex, the CISO at mobile app start-up FilmFestFun.

Alex is having a very bad day. In the run-up to his company launching their new app, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong – and then some.

The train’s late. The build keeps failing. The pen tester finds hundreds of bugs. Alex tries explaining to CEO Kyla that releasing an app with critical vulnerabilities is a very bad move. But she’s not having any of it. FilmFestFun has already spent millions on that night’s launch party and she wants the app now.

Find out what Alex has learned about why cutting corners on software security testing could end up costing more than what was saved.
