In this handout we zoom in on security in Software Development Life Cycles (SDLCs). Why should you have one, and what can you do to improve it?Download handout
A world of state-of-the-art devices and applications is upon us. Thus new and flexible SDLCs become imperative, and agility is more necessary than ever. And, as release times become shorter and shorter, the impact on many aspects of a company’s software development process, ranging from security to maturity, becomes bigger and bigger.
Maybe you already know this, but we can not resist to share this astonishing fact:
Today there are 3.9 billion people, with an estimated total of almost 24 billion devices, connected to the internet. That’s 6 times the amount of people! Most of our devices have outdated security systems, or gaps in our apps that leave room for hackers.
In this digital handout, we share several more important facts and figures that’ll highlight the future and stress the importance of agile software development. How can we prevent our software updates leaving room for hackers, whilst still updating at an increasingly fast pace? And, more importantly: we explain why companies urgently need a safety net to come with it.
“A safety net prevents loose mistakes from being abused and developing into full-on security breaches.”
