Digital Interruption

Virtual AppSec SME

Finding an in-house AppSec Subject Matter Expert (SME) can be a challenge. Insecure software can be non compliant, vulnerable to hackers and susceptible to data leaks, but without the right advice it can be difficult to identify what secure software looks like.

This is where we can help.

Virtual AppSec SME is a service where Digital Interruption consultants provide application security guidance remotely. We sit on your preferred internal comms platform so we can interact with you in your own working environment.

This way we can understand your products better, respond quicker and you feel like you have a real team member; leading to better understanding of your AppSec requirements, and safer software. 

Rather than relying on just penetration testing, which can often uncover issues too late, we can advise on how you can develop with security baked in, saving you time, money and from uncertainty.

Our consultants specialise in all areas of AppSec, from web, to cloud, to compliance. We’re available to guide your teams through all stages of secure software development. Providing support when it matters most.

A penetration test is how we test for security by running an “attack simulation”. While a penetration test can be a useful exercise once a system is built, it can’t replace having the right advice and guidance during the development process.

Our Outsourced Security Support service will provide the guidance and information you need while you’re developing your applications, rather than testing for issues once development is complete.

We’ll adopt whichever technologies your teams use to communicate to integrate as seamlessly as possible. As an example, if your team uses Slack, we’ll be available on your slack channels to answer direct security questions, provide help and advice and chime in on conversations (where relevant!).

We suggest teams of no more than 10, they can consist of whoever you want in the company; it could be security champions, lead developers or a team working on a high-risk project, it’s up to you. 

We aim to answer every request within 24 hours, but will often answer a question straight away. For more complex matters, we can make use of the whole team at Digital Interruption. With our mix of skills and experiences, we’ve not had anything we can’t answer yet!

As part of the service we will enter  an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) with you. This means your teams can communicate normally and you have the pease of mind that your intellectual property is safe.
