Application Security expert Samir Sherif joins Episode #113 of Task Force 7 Radio to talk about the importance of Application Security and role quality Development Security Operations plays in the National Security of the United States. Mr. Sherif unpacks this complex domain and explains in ordinary terms why listeners should be interested and concerned about application security. He provides his opinion on whether or not organizations are prioritizing and funding application security properly, the challenges of creating a convergent culture in cyber security operations, and if engineers in the technology space should continue to be in charge of patching operations across the lines of business. Mr. Sherif also opines on what it takes to be an application security engineer, the status of talent available to fill ASM roles across the industry, and how companies should manage the risks of running develop shops in countries that we do not necessarily trust.
