[Discuss] Security Acronyms Cheat Sheet

Ever been in a meeting with a security engineer, and hear them use various acronyms that they just assume you know the meaning of, yet in reality, they are not terms you’re familiar with?!

Unfortunately, this seems to be a common occurrence in many DevSecOps organizations. In fact, we at Snyk fell into this trap with our recent announcement of the SAST capabilities in Snyk. We received a lot of feedback on social media that people didn’t know what SAST was.

So, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a cheatsheet of the top 10 most common security acronyms—and don’t worry, we have included SAST as one of them so keep reading to find out what that’s all about.
