by Ben Tomhave  |  February 2, 2015  |  Comments Off on Updated Research on AppSec Testing

As of January 30th, we have an updated paper out titled “How to Perform Application Security Testing for Web and Mobile Applications” (GTP subscription required). Following is the summary from the document:

“Application security testing remains a critical application security practice for developers, testers and security team members. This document explains how to implement three phases of AST throughout the software life cycle.”

This paper continues the narrative set forth in our appsec guidance framework, “Application Security: Think Big, Start With What Matters,” which lays out the overall recommend structure for an appsec program.

We hope that you’ll find this research to be useful and welcome your feedback!
