Statement from Mr. Shaun McLagan Vice President, APJ, Snyk

“Security needs to shift to developer-first, where it is built into the development process early rather than waiting to pass over to a separate security team when development is done. If companies want to build a secure product, it needs to be addressed as it is developed, not seen as an afterthought. Getting developers to embrace security, and build it into the fabric of software development is key to ensuring that security can keep up with the pace of modern development, and a fundamental requirement for securing our digital lives.”, expressed Mr. Shaun McLagan (Vice President, APJ, Snyk).
