Development Team Security Implementation

You’ve realised that you need to do something about the rising number of defects being introduced into your software products. Competitors are outmanoeuvring you. Security reviews and penetration testing is costing you too much. Your customers are demanding higher security and protection of their data. Your Development Team(s) simply don’t have the time or expertise to add more heavy weight security process and practises.

What if we told you:

That by working with you we could reduce the amount you spend on traditional security reviews, penetration testing, and at the same time reduce the defects being introduced, and significantly improve your security stature, while reducing total project cost?

Together, we could help get your product to market quicker, and with fewer security defects?

We could give you the ability to prove to your customers that you were taking the security of their data seriously, and that your product(s) were a much safer investment than your competitor’s?

You could even invite your customers to be part of your development process, and be amazed by seeing security defects fixed as they are found in a continuous integration or nightly build environment.

Outcomes:

Once you have a roadmap for success, which we can work with you to provide at a fixed price, detailing where your Development Team(s) can be doing better, how to do better, and providing clear steps to achieve the shared goal, teams will often need some hands on assistance to establish the light weight processes and practises, tools and techniques outlined in the roadmap, workshop, and Kim’s book.

We can work with your Development Team(s) implementing the security roadmap, providing ongoing mentoring as required, and then handing the reins over, continuing to monitor and provide ongoing advice and coaching as required, this way setting you up for the pit of success.

This process can be relatively quick to implement, and has the side-effect of saving huge amounts of money on fixing defects once they’ve been in the system for a long time.
