High paced agile software development is becoming part of our customers’ DNA. However, agile teams often miss knowledge on secure coding, and software security is often applied as an afterthought. By doing so, organisations face new challenges on the field of data exchange, password security and storage of personal identifiable information. Neglecting these issues may lead to insecure or complex software, reputational damage and unnecessary delays in the software development process.
How to become the trustworthy innovator?
The flexibility offered by agile working methodologies is key when it comes to innovating at a high pace. Trustworthiness of the solution should not translate into additional, unnecessary, and expensive checks; but should be the result of an integrated software development process. Short development iterations provide the flexibility to face the relevant information security risks of the moment.
Xebia introduces: Agile Security Risk Management
Agile Security Risk Management (ASRM) provides product owners insight into the most relevant information security risks, enabling them to apply the right focus in the development process. Information security risks, laws and regulations translate to reliable IT-solutions. Furthermore, ASRM ensures that the product under development will contain less leaks by training the developers and adding security checks to the continuous delivery pipeline. ASRM takes Continuous Delivery to the next level and increases the business value of every sprint.
