Up to 90% of software security problems are caused by coding errors, which is why secure coding
standards are essential. There are several secure coding practices you can adopt. But, to write truly
secure code, you need a secure coding standard.
Here, we explain what are secure coding standards and how to...
Vulnerable software and applications are the leading cause of security breaches. Couple this with
the fact that software is proliferating at an accelerated pace, and it’s clear why malicious actors
have zeroed in on this rapidly-expanding attack surface.
Software security must be a top priority going forward....
Integrating application security into your software development process is critical, but figuring out where to start can be confusing. Downloading Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST) is a smart place to start.
By reading the report, you’ll learn:
Why modern application...
Digital innovation is the ultimate source of competitiveness and value creation for almost every type of business. The universal desire for faster innovation demands
efficient reuse of code, which in turn has led to a growing dependence on open source and thirdparty software libraries.

The SolarWinds supply chain compromise has raised questions over how to detect software that has been tainted during the vendor's development and build process. A concept called verified reproducible builds could help, says David Wheeler of the Linux Foundation.
Open source software is created by talented software developers from around the world who donate their time and intelligence to create software and components, then provide those free of charge to anyone wishing to
use them under the terms of their licenses (including the Beerware license).
The benefits open source...
Organizations are increasingly turning to containers and Kubernetes to improve the efficiency and scalability of software development efforts. Containers introduce new security issues, highlighting the need for container specific security tools.

Vulnerabilities due to "coding errors" in a number of mobile banking applications make them all too susceptible to hacking and customer account data theft, the security firm Positive Technologies warns.
The number of reported vulnerabilities found in open source software more than doubled in 2019 to almost 1,000, with projects such as Magento, GitLab, and Jenkins posting the largest increases, according to security firm RiskSense.
Containers are shaping the way organizations are developing and managing applications nowadays. However, many are not always fully aware of the measures that need to be taken across the entire software development lifecycle, especially when it comes to open source security aspects. The mindset of securing our...
Robotic process automation aims to use machine learning to create bots that automate high-volume, repeatable tasks. But as organizations tap RPA, they must ensure they take steps to maintain data security, says Deloitte's Ashish Sharma.
Code reuse kills - software quality, that is, according to a new study of C++ code snippets shared on Stack Overflow that were reused in more than 2,800 GitHub projects. But there's help for organizations that want to support their developers' urge to cut and paste prewritten code snippets.
Software is no longer delivered on a CD-ROM with occasional updates. Software delivery has become a continuous process for SaaS, mobile and desktop apps with technology suppliers woven in. Open source, service provider APIs, and of course cloud are all woven in and changing continuously.
What value is a point in...
Since at least 2016, hacked websites have targeted zero-day flaws in current versions of Apple iOS to surreptitiously implant data-stealing and location-tracking malware, says Google's Project Zero team. Apple patched the latest vulnerabilities in February.
The recent exposure of customer data on the website of Singapore Airlines as a result of a software bug is further evidence of the persistent challenge of adequately addressing security during the development stage.
