Join Microsoft MVP Hamish Watson to discover how Database Reliability Engineering is like DevOps on steroids.

Understanding how data flows into, across components, and out of an application is critical for security and performance. Yet, modern software development is making data flow and data leakage identification increasingly complex. Faster release cycles, leveraging modular architectures/microservices, open source libraries and APIs makes it harder to understand the totality of how critical data is handled. For example, is personally identifiable information or device tokens being logged in Splunk? Are hard-coded credentials being pushed to GitHub? Is a microservice storing decrypted payment card information in S3? Lastly, for organizations with EU resident data, GDPR has significantly expanded the definition of what sensitive information is. Thus, the challenge of managing flows is further exacerbated. This webinar will explain the challenges of mapping critical data flows and how semantic graphing techniques can provide new insights through visualization, as well as, identifying external leakages.

Join Microsoft MVP Grant Fritchey as he discusses database DevOps in Financial Services with our panel of industry experts. They will explore the similarities and differences in their experiences of DevOps, how that looks for Financial Services in today’s landscape, and key industry findings from our 2020 State of Database DevOps report.

While graph databases are primarily known as the backbone of the modern social networks, we have found a much more interesting application for them: program analysis. This talk aims to demonstrate that graph databases and the typical program representations developed in compiler construction are a match made in heaven, allowing large code bases to be mined for vulnerabilities using complex bug descriptions encoded in simple, and not so simple graph database queries. This talk will bring together two well-known but previously unrelated topics: static program analysis and graph databases. After briefly covering the "emerging graph landscape" and why it may be interesting for hackers, a graph representation of programs exposing syntax, control-flow, data-dependencies and type information is presented, designed specifically with bug/backdoors/business logic flaws hunting in mind. Capabilities of the system will then be demonstrated live with Joern, an open source code exploration tool, as we craft queries for RCE exploits, insider attacks, data leak detection.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect on January 1, 2020. CCPA dramatically increases the types of data that an organization must secure from historically sensitive data (financial accounts, social security numbers, credit cards, etc.) to any personally identifiable data including things as benign as web browsing history. While this act is similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there are many differences in the scope of CCPA. For instance, CCPA covers medical data completely differently from GDPR. Furthermore, the scope of CCPA is broad. It applies not only to California-based businesses, but also to any company with data on California residents. CCPA also allows consumers to file a claim without proving actual damage from a data breach, which has historically been hard to prove in data breach lawsuits. At its core CCPA, and all data compliance, is about mapping routes, by understanding sources, sinks and transforms to identify violations. However, in the past this has been an intensely manual process that does not scale to meet regular audit needs. This webinar will introduce a graphical approach to mapping data flows and demonstrating compliance with CCPA and the emerging data privacy law landscape. Is there an easy way to ensure compliance for data managed by your customer facing web applications? Join us for this webinar to learn:
- How to identify critical data in your system
- How to map critical data flows from sources to sinks, across microservices, SDKs, Open source libraries and APIs.
- How to identify and prevent sensitive data leaks
- Why data leakage is increasing in its complexity
- How to address underlying factors driving the challenge
- ShiftLeft overview & demo

Graph databases offer security teams a new and more efficient way to find zero day vulnerabilities. As software development increases its reliance on open source libraries and release cycles get faster and faster application security is becoming more and more difficult. AppSec still has the same charter -- to find vulnerabilities in dev, before they reach prod, but now with more complexity and less time. Graphing source code, and traversing it to identify technical and business logic vulnerabilities, gives AppSec teams a much needed leg up identify zero days and stay ahead of attackers. As numerous famous examples demonstrate, open source libraries are a common attack vector. Hence, AppSec teams must secure 3rd party dependencies just as vigorously as custom code. While much of the emphasis for securing open source libraries (OSS) has been on identifying and eliminating known CVEs, because OSS is widely used, zero-day vulnerabilities are often more likely to be found in popular OSS than custom code. This webinar will cover the following:
- An introduction to the emerging graph landscape and why it matters for AppSec
- How a Fortune 500 company is using graphs to find zero days
- Technical demo of finding technical and business logic vulnerabilities in source code

Hard coded usernames, passwords, tokens and other secrets in the source code are an increasingly common security risk. As microservice architectures and API usage become more common developers increasingly need to exchange credentials and other secrets either internally or externally. At the same time, software release velocity has increased and developers are under more time pressure than ever before. This leads to shortcuts getting taken in many organizations because setting up proper authentication schemes can be cumbersome and time consuming. This webinar will cover:
- Most common types of hard-coded secrets
- Most common scenarios that drive developers to hard-coded secrets
- How-to find secrets in source code
- Automating regression testing for secrets at every pull request

Knowing what’s happening on your servers is vital to ensuring business continuity. In this session Microsoft MVP Grant Fritchey & Redgate’s Jeremiah Peschka show you the best way to set up monitoring on your environment, and how Redgate SQL Monitor provides a powerful and fast way of achieving this.

The focus of many application security programs has long been the OWASP Top 10 or SANS Top 25 vulnerabilities. While there are many SAST solutions that can identify these technical vulnerabilities such as SQLi, CSRF or XEE, SAST is not effective in identifying vulnerabilities that require context such as conditions leading to business logic, data leakage or hard-coded secrets. While pattern-matching techniques can be used to identify the symptoms of an injection vulnerability across any code-base, pattern-matching is not sufficient for business logic, data leakage or hard-coded secrets because these issues are unique to each code-base. Manual code review or penetration testing can help, but neither scales to the pace of modern release velocities. This presentation covers:
- Identifying sensitive data variables and mapping their flows across all sources and sinks
- Finding the conditions leading to business logic flaws
- Identifying hard-coded secrets and literals in source code such as usernames, passwords, tokens and API keys
- How-to insert the above security checks into pull requests or builds w/o slowing releases down
