The security attacks move from today’s well-protected IT network infrastructure to the software everyone uses – raising the attack surface to any company, organization or individual. Paradoxically, software that increases productivity that is often used simultaneously puts a large amount of sensitive data.
Updates and software management management cycles that can no longer be modus operandi or accepted. A growing community of professionals, backed by a global information security professional certification body,understand that escaping this vicious cycle requires a systemic approach.
Given below is a three practice compiler for secure software development that reflects the experience and expertise of several stakeholders in the software development life cycle (SDLC). Stakeholders include analysts, architects, coders, testers, auditors, operations and management personnel.
1.Protect the brand your customers trust
When cyber criminals grow, so do defenders. It is their defenders and organizations who need to be in front of cyber criminals as they will be responsible for security breach.
Violations that lead to disclosure of customer information, denial of service, and threats to the continuity of business operations can result in poor financial consequences. However, the actual cost to the organization is the loss of customer trust and confidence in the brand.
2.Know your business and support it with secure solutions
The answer to the question – ‘Why brake was created?’ can be answered in two ways, ‘To prevent vehicles from accident’ or ‘To allow vehicles to run faster’. Similarly, security can prevent the business from accidents or allow businesses to run faster.
People must work with a deep understanding of the business, to help identify regulatory and compliance requirements, relevant risks, architectures to be used, technical controls for inclusion, and users to be trained or educated.
3.Understand the technology of the software
A thorough understanding of the existing infrastructure components such as: network separation, hard-core host, public key infrastructure, to name a few, is necessary to ensure the introduction of the software, when used, will start working operationally and then undermine the security of available computing environments there is.
Understanding the interaction of technology components with software is important to determine the impact on security and overall support decisions that improve software security. Furthermore, when acquiring software, it is important to recognize the seller’s claim about the ‘security’ feature, as well as verify the execution eligibility in your organization.
