NCF-53 Proactively Developing New Software with Security Built In


Today we talk about a subject that we don’t hear often, which is about proactive approaches to security when designing new software. Our Guest Rob Cross is the Vice President of Pro Services Corporation (PSC). Our discussion is a good introduction to everyone to hear what the largest concerns are which face the Software industry. We discuss how many of the common hacks we all hear about could have been stopped with better software coding techniques. Do not worry, though you don’t need to be a software developer to get something from today’s show.
In the industry of security of software the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is the best resource with the most recent software concerns and weaknesses. We reference best practices recommendations of OWASP and several tools that are new in the industry for developers to take control of this problem in the future. If you want to learn more the OWASP site keeps an up to date list of the top concerns in the industry that you can reference at any time.
