As the threat landscape continues to accelerate and evolve, companies are re-evaluating how to better protect core assets, as well as, instilling security into the very fabric of their product development efforts.
In this paper, Daitan reviews the threat landscape and common vulnerabilities of 2017. In the context of application development and security measures, we discuss the role Digital Transformation plays in security. In addition, we review how the evolution of software development technologies, architectures and the growing use of third party resources (both proprietary and open source) has influenced development processes and security measures. Finally, we provide our thinking and approach to building a security mindset for application development.
