Secure Software Development Lifecycle


A programmer usually follows a software development lifecycle to create software. The secure software development lifecycle is a structured way of taking security into account during each development phase while building software.

Why do you need Secure Software Development Lifecycle?

Preventing security flaws from the beginning of the development stage is important in order to ensure a software application is well developed. Secure development entails the utilization of several processes, including the implementation of a Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) and secure coding.

EGS provides a risk measurement method for software security vulnerabilities and integrates it to a client organization’s risk management program. A client organization will be prepared to react adequately to emerging internal and external threats; guidelines will be provided for customized mitigation solution prioritization.
