What is it?

Application Security Coding Guidelines are published step-by-step procedures used for developing robust code for business critical applications such as CRMs, websites, shopping carts etc.

By addressing security in the coding phase of an application, the risk of compromise is significantly reduced as it ensures the coding does not contain security flaws and weaknesses that could be exploited subsequent to their deployment.

Why should I do it?

Because “real security” starts at the application level. Applications are the ‘gateway’ to data, and all the network and database security in the world means nothing if you leave the gate open. Thieves are lazy; the trick is to not be the one with the easiest code to break.

Secure coding is internationally recognised best practice and required for compliance to virtually all governance risk and compliance frameworks out there.

What will Risk Factory do?

  • Provide baseline application secure coding guidelines based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) established best practice.
  • Conduct a secure coding guidelines workshop for your developer team and appropriate business stakeholders to tailor baseline guidelines to your business objectives and operations and ensure uniform understanding.

What will I receive?

  • Company-branded Application Secure Coding Guidelines for publication and implementation.
  • A half day workshop with stakeholders to review, finalise and understand guidelines.
  • A certificate of validation for evidence of compliance.

Do I need to do anything in advance?

You will need to speak with one of our consultants to confirm the coding languages and compliance requirements you need addressed and to schedule the workshop.

You’ll also need to ensure that your developers and appropriate stakeholders are available to attend the workshop. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Factory Foreman.
