Secure Development

Software is everywhere. Unfortunately, software is also filled with bugs. Access violations, buffer overflows, SQL injections, cross-site scripting, cryptographic issues and insufficient input validations are some of the most common software vulnerabilities that must be addressed carefully to prevent an application layer attack

This is why more and more organizations, ranging from banks to public sector associations, from  health care providers to technology firms, are starting to incorporate security as integral part of their Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).  

Secure Development or Secure SDLC means addressing software risks at all phases of the development process: requirements, architecture, design  development, validation, integration, operations and decommissioning.
