WORKSHOP ABSTRACT / OBJECTIVE
Secure coding is important for every development, engineering team. 80% of software security problems are caused by insecure coding, which is why secure coding standards are essential. There are several secure coding practices to practice. That’s reason you need a secure coding standards, rules and guidelines used to prevent security vulnerabilities
SECURE CODING IMPORTANCE:
Secure coding standards are important because they help to ensure that software is safeguarded against security vulnerabilities. secure coding is important for every development team regardless of whether it’s code for mobile, SAAS, Cloud, or embedded devices.
SECURE CODE BENEFITS:
Building a Secure Development Lifecycle will be led to positive impact by reducing risk to customers, company’s brand, increase customer satisfaction and trust. Also, reducing sustaining and code maintenance costs and earning a leadership in the marketplace. Below are few key advantages for coding securely.
- Greater Collaboration
- Increased Visibility
- Shorter Release Cycle
- financial advantages of producing trustworthy software
I am planning to conduct workshops by giving hands on exercises to audience to understand Security principles that needs to be consider in secure coding practices to audience
