Video: code quality

Matt Peachey, vice president, Emea, Veracode – says eight out of 10 applications will be insecure. In this video he discusses why developers do not relate security to code quality. Peachey believes it is not just in-house code that may be insecure…do not trust suppliers. “You need to hold suppliers accountable.,” he adds. “Do not assume that the software you buy from third parties is secure. It probably is not secure.”

He says, “Organisations do not insist an application is secure – they should push this responsibility down to their suppliers”

Companies are poor at measuring quality. “How do you know you are getting better over time.”
