Software Security Initiative
Application development requires continuous commitment to security at every stage of the process from planning to operations. It is nearly impossible to build a secure system based only on design activities or testing. The key is to learn the current and the appropriate security levels for the applications and prioritize continuously. Without knowing the threats and appropriate risk level, it is impossible to implement correct and cost-effective security controls. Truesec can help shift your application security activities from reactive to proactive. We can help you design an application security program and offer continuous support to your development team through software development and project life cycles. We work closely with your team and help you maintain and follow up on your security roadmap.
Building on Truesec’s unique expertise in both cyber security and software development, we can augment or develop your application security team, knowledge, and processes.
- By providing decision makers with maturity status and basis for risk assessment, we can help organizations make appropriate security decisions.
- By focusing on continuous betterment and support, we can strengthen and empower the development team in application security areas rather than pointing fingers or focusing only on requirements. Our goal is to help you improve your application security posture.
- By focusing on prevention, we can help you “shift left” in application security. Finding security issues early greatly decreases both cost and remediation time.
Application security is not only for application security experts. We want to help pave the way for developers to be able to focus on providing business value, through secure defaults, training, the right amount of tooling, and pragmatic continuous analysis of the system.
Our expertise can help you both in securing the development processes themselves and in improving those processes to make it harder to introduce security vulnerabilities in the final product.
At the core of the offer is what we call continuous Security Therapy, where we work together with development teams to find and manage security vulnerabilities at an agreed upon frequency. Depending on the assignment and team size, the customer can often benefit from assigning security champions in their teams who can improve in-house security knowledge and practices with the support of Truesec.
Truesec can provide a much-needed channel for your developers to get feedback on security questions and architecture. Either in the abovementioned sessions or in the form of your chat and issue management system (depending on what is agreed upon).
Software Security Initiative is best performed in a combination of on-site and remote work.
