Q

Application security throughout the SDLC

Integration of security throughout the development process is key to application security. Expert Brad Arkin explains how.

What methods will make my applications more secure?

Ideally, for any application, security is a process that is incorporated throughout the application's development life cycle. Security checks throughout the life cycle should include:

  1. A risk profile to determine the risk of an application to the organization.
  2. Defining specific security requirements to use throughout the project.
  3. A security design review
  4. A security code review
  5. A proper security test plan
  6. A penetration test.

By implementing these security measures, you will produce a much more secure application in the long run, at a much lower cost than trying to add security onto an application at the end.
