Digital transformation without compromising trust

/ Lecture
In the age of ubiquitous internet access and widespread use of smart phone devices, citizens expect that the public sector meets demands of easier, faster and more flexible access to services. This creates also new challenges for public sector information security: Since citizens, patients, tax payers, vehicle user etc. expect to be able to access services in a convenient way online, it is required that data from different sources needs to be integrated and combined, and access to confidential information needs to be highly secure. The challenge is to support this digital transformation without compromising the trust and security of the service consumer.
The underlying software used in this environment needs to be built for a cloud native technology stack and to be secured from the ground up. The software in SaaS scenarios need to be built to be deployed often and consists of micro services which are orchestrated together to provide the end user experience expected by the service consumer (at all public sector levels from local services to national administration). This is where application security builds the foundation to find vulnerabilities early in the software development lifecycle, such as preventing trust boundary violations, checking API security (to secure micro-services interacting with each other), and checking for known vulnerabilities in open source components. All of these checks are needed both in the software supply chain as well as in individual customisations of software products provided by larger vendors. Checkmarx provides solutions for both large vendors as well as for the local customisations developed on top of those products.
