Strategies for Building Cyber Security into Software Development

In this Software Magazine piece, Galois’ Isaac Potoczny-Jones writes about what vendors can do to build cyber security into¬†their products from the start.¬†“Cyber security should not be an afterthought in the software development process; it should be the first thought. As applications, systems and devices increasingly fall victim to hacks, vendors may be tempted to assume that business users and consumers have become desensitized to the problem. That adding two-factor authorization or offering three months of credit monitoring service will somehow wipe the slate clean with no damage done to brand perception, customer growth, and revenues. This is not the case. Building cyber security into the front end of the software development process is critical to ensuring software works only as intended.”
