The 3M Company is an American multinational corporation operating in the fields of industry, worker safety, health care, and consumer goods. 3M uses science to improve lives and help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges.
Catering to millions of customers worldwide, it comes as no surprise that 3M makes its application security a priority and requires its software developers secure mandatory coding education. For this case study, an interview was conducted with Adam Bentley who manages 3M Health Information Systems’ (3M HIS) Code Security program and oversees developers’ coding education. Already a Checkmarx CxSAST customer, 3M HIS chose to use CxCodebashing, Checkmarx’s AppSec awareness and training solution for DevOps, to ensure developers were well versed in secure coding best practices and techniques.
