The vast majority of system vulnerabilities come from application code.  These vulnerabilities can give cyber criminals the ability to take over your system, steal your critical data, and spread damaging malware.  Organizations must take every precaution to follow secure coding practices to effectively build security from development to deployment.

What Make Secure Coding Practices Important?

Using these secure coding best practices help organizations protect products by putting security at the forefront and making it a top priority from the beginning.  Integrating security from the start, as early as the development stage of the process, is much more cost-effective than trying to fix security issues after deployment.  Security at the development stage is essential for protecting pertinent customer data and their trust in your company, as well as meeting mandatory compliances such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
