Re: Unsafe Code
Peter - You are spot on.  It is absolutely mindblowing that in 2016, we are still seeing AppSec receive the lack of attention that is deserves.  The short term pseudo-benefit that organizations realize is cost savings, but it only takes once for them to suffer a breach or loss of confidential data and that cost savings quickly reverses.  There really is no excuse, given that this type of effort can almost be 100% outsourced.  Funny enough, I remember, beginning in 2004, that I always thought the current year would be the year of AppSec.  I've been proven wrong, year after year, even though it has certainly garnered a lot of attention since then.  I do believe, as we see a younger generation of executives come online, that we will see a better understanding of the ramifications and the actions to mitigate.  Fingers crossed...

Unsafe Code
It blows my mind that in 2016 there are still enterprises out there that don't vuln scan their apps. It would make me so nervous to have all that code out there twisting in the wind! There has to be business ramifications that aren't fully understood or are being ignored. I can't imagine that any enterprise benefits from ignoring this problem.
