London, U.K, – 23 April, 2012 – Veracode, Inc., the leader in cloud-based application security testing, today announced that Sam King, Senior VP of Product Strategy and Marketing will speak at Infosecurity Europe, which will take place from 24-26 April in the Earls Court exhibition centre, London, in addition to this, Veracode will be exhibiting at the event at booth G20, showcasing its market-leading application security-as-a-service platform.

Ms King will be speaking at 3.20 pm on Tuesday 24 April in the Business Strategy Theatre. Her session, titled ‘The Risk in your Supply Chain: Measuring the Security of Commercial Software’ will examine the risk posed to businesses by security flaws in externally developed software code. The vast majority of deployed software is purchased from commercial software companies, but research by Veracode has shown that the majority of commercial software applications fail to meet acceptable security quality on first test.

Using the latest research, exclusive to Veracode, the session will analyse the risks, such as backdoors and other vulnerabilities, ask what industries are most impacted, and discuss what steps businesses can take to ensure a higher degree of protection – such as knowing what security areas to consider when purchasing commercial software, and establishing a third party risk programme.

Infosecurity Europe is one of Europe’s leading events for the information security industry, with an extensive education programme delivered across three theatres. The most innovative solutions and services available to tackle the challenges faced by management, CEO's and end-user organisations alike are presented in the Business Strategy theatre by senior speakers from the vendor community.
