Thousands of times each day, network perimeter security defenses fail to recognize new and obfuscated attacks. Rather than attempting to build security firewalls, Declan O’Riordan asserts that project teams must design, code, and test security into applications―and that requires skills that are in short supply. As testers, we need to recognize which security tests we can perform and which require delegation to experts. Let’s stop our passive acceptance of designs that are weak on security and instead conduct analysis of the security features before we plan the system testing.

Many companies develop strong software development practices that include ongoing testing throughout the development lifecycle. But they fail to account for the testing of security-related issues. This leads to security controls being tacked on to an application just before it goes to production. With security controls implemented in this manner, more security vulnerabilities are uncovered but there is less time to correct them.
