Secure Software Development Training

Secure software development is crucial because a defective software can have very dire consequences to any business organization or system.

The costs of detecting such malicious attacks and remediation of the damages can be significantly reduced if standards are adhered to and professional steps taken in the early stages of the software development life cycle.

Secure software development entails the utilization of several processes, including the implementation of a Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) and secure coding itself.

Considering all the successful cyber-attacks that take advantage of software vulnerabilities, it’s become essential for organizations to purchase and use only the safest software, while implementing secure software development modalities.

For most organizations, a major step toward secure software development is awareness. For example, it’s important to know that one of the most common attacks on software is called buffer overflow.

Considering the recent surge in successful cyberattacks taking advantage of software vulnerabilities, it’s become essential for organizations to purchase and use only the safest software.

This is why a secure software development policy is essential. A secure software development policy is a set of guidelines detailing the practices and procedures an organization should follow to decrease the risk of vulnerabilities during software development.

In addition, the policy should provide detailed instruction on viewing, assessing, and demonstrating security through each phase of the SDLC, including risk management approaches.

It’s essential that a secure software development policy establish rules. The team members of organizations must clearly understand their duties, receive thorough training and undergo strict employee screening.

Instituting segregation of duties ensures no one person has total control or knowledge of a project. Testing protocols need to assess all employee work in order to ensure acceptable standards.

One of the keys of secure software development is input data validation, the process of ensuring that input data is accurate and complies with the requirement of the input field.

All data originating from outside the software, whether from clients’ or other interface applications, must always be treated as questionable. Issues arising from vulnerabilities at input are carried through the system to output.

Equally important is the encoding of data before execution. One of the vulnerabilities that facilitate many injection attacks is when the database is not adequately isolated from the running code.

Though isolation may curtail, to some extent, some of these attacks, a better standard security measure is to encode data, making it safe before it is used. Encoded data is transformed into unrecognizable executable statements before being passed to the respective interpreter.
