It’s officially spring time! The Mayhem team has been on the road, enjoying the warm weather and sun. We participated in B Sides last month, hosted a webinar on “How to Increase Test Coverage With Mayhem for API”, and hosted a university hackathon at UC Santa Cruz.
We have two upcoming events planned for May 2023:
Read on to learn more about May’s events. We hope to see you there!
Open-source libraries can be a double-edged sword for software developers. While they provide access to pre-built components and tools, they can also introduce security vulnerabilities into your code.
Join the Mayhem team in our upcoming webinar to learn how to identify and address vulnerabilities in open-source libraries.
When: May 24, 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET
This webinar is designed for software developers, IT professionals, security engineers, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about securing applications with open-source libraries, including:
The role of open-source libraries in software development and the common vulnerabilities they introduce
Techniques for identifying and assessing vulnerabilities in open-source libraries, including manual and automated methods
Best practices for addressing vulnerabilities in your code, including patching, version control, and risk management
Real-world examples of open-source library vulnerabilities and how they can be exploited
Strategies for mitigating the risks of open-source libraries in your software development process
GlueCon is a developer-oriented conference focused on providing the latest in-depth technical information, presented in a format that fosters community. GlueCon’s Topics include APIs, DevOps, Serverless, Edge Computing, Containers, Microservices, AI-driven applications, Developer Evangelism, Platform Engineering, WASM and the newest tools driving technology.
Where: Broomfield, Colorado
When: May 24-25, 2023
We will have a table at GlueCon, and our Director of Sales Engineering, Vincent Lussenburg, will be giving a talk: “Test Like a Hacker: Putting Offensive Cybersecurity Into Your Build Process”.

In April the Mayhem team participated in the following events:
Webinar: How to Increase Test Coverage With Mayhem for API
Speed vs. Resilience: Making the Right Trade-offs for Software Security virtual panel
Securing Open Source Software University Hackathon
We avoided the Mayhem of the RSA show floor, but the Mayhem team was out in force during B-Sides SF the weekend before. We met with customers, enjoyed the San Francisco spring weather, and showed off the latest updates to Mayhem at our booth.
Vincent Lussenburg, our Sales Engineering Director, gave a talk in our first monthly “Webinar Wednesday” on how to increase test coverage with Mayhem.
The benefits of using Mayhem for API testing, including improved code quality and faster time to market
How to set up Mayhem for API testing and configure it to meet your testing needs
Real-world examples of how companies have used Mayhem to improve their API testing coverage and identify critical bugs
Expert tips and best practices for using Mayhem effectively in your testing workflow
If you missed it, learn how to set up Mayhem to test your API and configure it to meet your testing needs by watching the recording here:
The Argyle group recently hosted a CISO Leadership Forum, bringing together cybersecurity leaders for a day of frank discussion and idea-sharing. ForAllSecure VP Marketing, Josh Thorngren participated in a panel discussion on how teams can effectively measure and manage application security risks, without impeding development velocity.
The panel covered topics from ‘risk aware vs risk averse’ to celebrating security successes, and adopting secure by design product mentalities.
We had another successful Hackathon event on Saturday, April 22nd. The Hackathon was at the University of California Santa Cruz, in Silicon Valley, and it was our second largest hackathon event so far, with 158 students attending!
Students learned fundamental DevSecOps concepts and best practices, how to test applications for defects with Mayhem, and gained the skills needed to find security exploits in open source software.
Thanks to everyone who attended our April events!
If you haven’t had the chance to meet our amazing Mayhem team or aren’t familiar with what we do, come join us at one of our upcoming events.
We’d love to talk about how Mayhem makes security testing easy for development teams by automatically generating test cases and only reporting exploitable, confirmed risks that produce actionable AppSec results.
Looking forward to seeing you!
