Security Software Development: Assessing and Managing Security Risks
Security Software Development: Assessing and Managing Security Risks Book
Threats to application security continue to evolve just as quickly as the systems that protect against cyber-threats. In many instances, traditional firewalls and other conventional controls can no longer get the job done. The latest line of defense is to build security features into software as it is being developed.
Drawing from the author’s extensive experience as a developer, Secure Software Development: Assessing and Managing Security Risks illustrates how software application security can be best, and most cost-effectively, achieved when developers monitor and regulate risks early on, integrating assessment and management into the development life cycle. This book identifies the two primary reasons for inadequate security safeguards: Development teams are not sufficiently trained to identify risks; and developers falsely believe that pre-existing perimeter security controls are adequate to protect newer software.
