Application Security is HARD
You're a CTO, product owner, or are otherwise responsible for building a secure application.
And you've got problems.
You need to identify vulnerabilities to make a better, more secure product
You don’t know where to start, how to do it, what to focus on, or even how much to spend
You don’t know how to communicate your security to your customers
Sound like you?
If so, I wrote this book for you
To do application security right, you need to stop doing it wrong.
Stop ignoring that it's about you
Stop thinking like a novice
Stop limiting collaboration
Stop confusing terms
Stop skipping the hard stuff
Stop delaying reassessment
Stop investing poorly
Stop skipping your threat model
Start streamlining costs
Start earning trust
Start winning contracts
Here's the idea...
Application security is confusing, overwhelming, misunderstood, hard to do, relies on extremely limited resources, competes with other burning priorities, has potent ramifications if done wrong, and is just straight up chaos.
Security might not even be your entire job, yet you’re nevertheless responsible for it. Or maybe it is your entire job, which means you’re responsible for the dumb decisions other people make. Either way, if there is a security breach: it’s on you.
What single issue lies at the heart of these problems?
Solve for security vulnerabilities, and you solve for these problems.
