Know how to address critical security issues
Molson Coors. Equifax. eBay. LinkedIn. News of data breaches, denial of service attacks, loss of service, and compromised information constantly make headlines. From SaaS platforms used by Fortune 500 companies to private healthcare patient data run through DICOM, data leaks happen, causing irreparable damage to enterprises and users. There’s no shortage of reasons for enterprises to have diligent, secure coding best practices in place to remedy or avoid the risk of a security breach.
At Devbridge, our team uses a simple yet effective approach to document and implement secure coding best practices. The tactics are ingrained in the agile software development life-cycle and embedded in every engagement.
We start with education, seeking out industry standards and best practices from open standards organizations. Our team leverages the learnings from OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) and the SANS (SysAdmin, Audit, Network, Security) Institute who set standards and regularly updates documentation based on the types of attacks occurring across industries. Then, enforcing these principles within SDLC through code reviews and DevOps automation, our engineer team ensures code compliance and high-quality software delivery.
Our team created a downloadable Secure Handbook to document our best practices. The documentation sets standards for our internal information security program and helps keep our team accountable. In the spirit of transparency, we are sharing our documented best practices to help our clients better understand the top security risks and implement controls in your software engineering organization.
