John Martin has owned responsibilities ranging from Software Supply Chain to DevSecOps Security Champions to Cloud Security Monitoring. His career spans the years between Blue-Box MF generators, through the era of automated hacks, and into our modern age of industrialized paranoia. He is a frequent speaker on the topic of commercial software security and a contributor to many SAFECode and CSA efforts. John joins us to discuss the prevention of a cyberpocalypse. You heard it correctly. Now tune in to learn what a cyberpocalypse is and why you need to care about it. We hope you enjoy this conversation with John Martin.
Jeremy Long is a principal engineer specializing in securing the SDLC. Jeremy is the founder and project lead for the OWASP dependency-check project; a software composition analysis tool that identifies known vulnerable 3rd party libraries. Jeremy joins us to share the origin story of dependency check, the problems it solves, the number of companies that use it, how to integrate it, and the future of the project.
Niels Tanis has a background in .NET development, pen-testing, and security consultancy. He has experience breaking, defending and building secure applications. Neils joins us to continue our .NET conversation from last year. This time around we focus on the 3rd party risk we pull into our applications by using third party libraries in a .NET world.
Maya is a Product Manager in Security & Privacy at Google, focused on container security. She previously worked on encryption at rest and encryption key management. Maya has a Master’s in mathematics, focusing on cryptography and game theory. Maya joins us to discuss how containers improve security, a high-level threat model of containers and orchestration, and tips for enhancing security as you role out containers and Kubernetes.
Geoffrey Hill is an AppSec DevSecOps leader and Architect. Geoff joins us to discuss his experiences rolling out DevSecOps in both Agile and non-Agile practicing shops. We hope you enjoy this conversation with…Geoff Hill.

David Kosorok is a code security expert, software tester, father of 9, and a self-described major nerd. David is the Director of AppSec at Align Tech, and a fellow member of the Raleigh Durham tech community. David joins us to speak about the three pillars of building an application security program: Prevent, Detect, and React. When we think the program, we’ve never heard anyone relate a program this way, and thought you needed to hear about a different approach to program building. We hope you enjoy this conversation with…. David Kosorok.
As the hosts of the Application Security Podcast, we get the opportunity from time to time to mix it up. This week we gather a few security articles, share a summary, and offer our opinions (for what our opinions are worth). The source of the articles is Hi-5, a weekly newsletter containing five security articles that are worth your time. We scour the Interwebs looking for the best articles on application and product security and share those with you. You can subscribe to Hi-5 on the Security Journey website.
Hit us up on Twitter and let us know if you like this format and if we should do more of this type of content. We hope you enjoy this episode with, Chris and Robert.
These are the articles:
Bill Dougherty is the vice president of IT and security at Omada Health, where he leads a team responsible for all aspects of internal IT including SaaS strategy, end-user support, vendor management, operational security and compliance. Bill along with Patrick Curry created the INCLUDES NO DIRT approach to threat modeling, which takes threat modeling to the next level, beyond STRIDE, and goes head on with a more modern set of real-world security considerations. We hope you enjoy this conversation with, Bill Dougherty.
Find Bill on Twitter @bdognet.

Marc French is a security person, firearms geek, scuba guy, lousy golfer, and an aspiring blacksmith. We met Marc in the hallway at the Boston Application Security Conference. Marc has extensive experience as a CISO but came from the world of AppSec to the exec suite, which is not the normal path. We discuss what is a CISO, and what does a CISO actually do, the role of AppSec in the life of the CISO, and tips Marc has for those that wish to become a CISO someday. We hope you enjoy this conversation with Marc French.
Threat modeling, secrets, mentoring, self-care, program building, and much more. Clips from Georgia Weidman, Simon Bennetts, Izar Tarandach, Omer Levi Hevroni, Tanya Janca, Björn Kimminich, Caroline Wong, Adam Shostack, Steve Springett, Matt McGrath, Brook Schoenfield, and Ronnie Flathers.
Ronnie Flathers is a security guy, a pentester, and a researcher. In this conversation, we explore his experiences in building application security programs. He’s had the opportunity to program build inside of companies big and small.
Brook Schoenfield is a Master Security Architect @IOActive and author of Securing Systems, as well as an industry leader in security architecture and threat modeling, and a friend.
“We have a static analysis tool. Why do we need a program?” This is what Brook overheard at one point in his past, from a company CTO, and it sums up the program issue. The CTO was trying to drive a technical strategy for an entire company, and security was just one piece of that. A mandate or a tool would have made life so easy.
Brook takes us on a journey based on his experience building programs, with advice, stories, comments, and quotes. We talk about architecture, culture, mindset, tools, compilers and so much more.
Catch Brook’s next book, “Secrets of a Cyber Security Architect” which arrives in Fall 2019.
Here is Brook’s first book on Amazon: Securing Systems: Applied Security Architecture and Threat Models
Liran Tal is a Developer Advocate @snyksec and is the author of Essential Node.js Security. He takes #opensource and protecting the #web very seriously.
