Software Development Security

Oct. 7, 2017 0 comments INFOSEC Institute Apps & Hardening

The scope of application development has increased considerably over the past couple of years. As the application environment has become more complex and challenging, the result is a more threat-prone environment where security is the key factor in the successful implementation of an application. Applications can have security vulnerabilities that may have been introduced intentionally or unintentionally by developers. This is why software and hardware controls are required, although they may not necessarily prevent problems arising out of poor programming. As an integral part of the software development process, security is an ongoing process that involves people and practices that collectively ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and reliability of an application.
