#HowTo Make Security Expertise Accessible to Developers

Application security is difficult: it requires developers and, especially, development team managers to adjust and make security a priority alongside other, more traditional development priorities such as features and timelines. Additionally, developers don’t typically have secure design and coding expertise by default and this can cause some security knowledge challenges that must be overcome.

Unfortunately, application security is even harder to scale than development, and there are way more developers writing code than there are people trying to secure it. For more information on the issue, check out the Building Security In Maturity Model – or BSIMM – as a general source, or BSIMM reference about software security groups in organizations in particular.
