Mmmm, Pandemic Puppies

This is a really encouraging set of trends that Sandy Carielli reports on:

My latest report, “The State Of Application Security, 2021,” draws heavily from that security survey mentioned above, and by far the most encouraging piece of data I share in the report is about how security pros are prioritizing application security. When asked about their top tactical priorities for the coming year, improving application security was the most common response, and building security into the development process was in the top 10. That latter priority shows up in the number of security teams continuing to shift left and build security tooling into the design and development phases of the software development lifecycle.

Where are the pandemic puppies? Well, you'll just have to read her blog post.
