Stephen Gates, Security Evangelist at Checkmarx celebrates the importance of modernisation, particularly in software-based services…
“Both AmeriCorps’ CEO Michael Smith and TMF’s Board Chair and Federal CIO Clare Martorana seem to understand the importance of modernisation, especially in the realm of software-based services.
Today, organisations worldwide must modernise through software, which must be secured during the development process. Otherwise, vast sums of money will be spent on trying to protect vulnerable software. It’s time to get ahead of the game and secure the software that the world runs on during development.”
