Developers: The Security Aware and Unaware

When it comes to software development, the cat’s out of the bag – failing to implement key security activities throughout has earned insecure software top prize with hackers. Malicious attacks resulting from the exploitation of vulnerabilities are on the rise and are no longer limited to large enterprises. SMBs are popular targets of cyberattacks and ransomware. Further, vulnerabilities are no longer just found in security-sensitive software and applications. They are found in things like cars, point-of-sale (POS) systems, and medical devices. Developers are often blamed for security vulnerabilities, but that may be an unfair assessment. More often than not, security barely has a pulse in an organization’s Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), let alone the plethora of developer-specific tasks that need to be conducted.
