Secure Decisions releases new technology to help streamline and enhance web application penetration testing
Secure Decisions, has developed a new application security testing technology, the Attack Surface Detector (ASD), that enhances and streamlines software penetration testing. Developed under the DHS S&T Directorate’s multi-year funded ASTAM (Application Security Technologies and Metrics) program.
A recent Newsday article by Ken Schachter titled "Progress slow in adding women in the boardrooms" includes Secure Decisions Director, Dr. Anita D'Amico.
Secure Decisions has received an award from the NSF under the SaTC: EDU Program. One of only ten projects funded in 2018 under this highly competitive program from NSF, the CyberMiSTS project aims to provide middle school Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers with knowledge, skills, and tools they need to develop a cybersecurity curriculum that actively engages their students and exposes them to cybersecurity concepts and careers.
Dr. Anita D’Amico and Chris Horn gave a well-received presentation about the Human factors that influence secure software development. View the Presentation slides ------------------------------- The following Tweets were given during their presentation: 10:37 AM – 12 Oct 2018 Robert A. @robertauger The talk ‘https://appsecus2018.sched.com/event/F04Q…’ at appsec USA is one of the best talks I’ve seen in the last several years. They quantify with several studies, vuln introduction rates and behaviors by dev teams. Lots of good data. Great job @AnitaDamico 10:51 AM – 12 Oct 2018 jamestyack @jamestyack @AnitaDamico talking human factors that influence app security with tons of empirical data. An interesting finding: the more verbose (& low substance) the commit comments, the higher the chance of problems in the code. Beware the “blather factor”. #AppSecUSA18
