Secure coding best practices for developers

Cybersecurity risks are steadily increasing; meaning application security is an absolute necessity. It’s no longer sufficient to quickly scan code after writing; secure coding practices must be a part of every developer’s skill set.

This may be new for many developers, but the success of your organization’s applications depends on your ability to weave security into your code from the start.

Access this whitepaper to learn some of the best steps you can take today to have more secure coding practices, and the many risks you’ll be able to address.

These are also closely related to: "Understanding Your Open Source Risk"

  • Best practices for securing open source code

    Recent research has shown that software is now comprised of more than 50% open source code. It’s a game changer in terms of how software is built today, but being available to everyone to use for free – it’s certainly not without its security concerns.

    You never want to leave security to chance. Open this report to find best practices for finding and mitigating security vulnerabilities in your open source code.

  • How to find and mitigate open source security risks

    Open source code is common. Developers routinely take code from open source repositories to embed in their company’s products to speed up the development process. While the use of open source software itself is not risky, it’s the use of unmanaged open source that you should be worried about.

    In a survey by Black Duck Audit Services in 2018, 60% of codebases contained at least one open source vulnerability.

    Open these survey results to learn where open source vulnerabilities are most likely lurking, and best practices for mitigating open source security risks.
