SSDLC: Secure Application Development At Every Stage

Adopt a continuous approach to security by integrating secure application development practices throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC).


What is secure application development?

Secure application development means integrating security into every stage of development, including:

  • Security requirements in the planning phase
  • Security-focused code reviews during development
  • Penetration testing during integration/acceptance testing

For teams following an agile approach, secure application development mean treating security as a feature rather than a non-functional requirement, and including security requirements in user stories.
