Chapter One: Learn
Learn the Reasons to Utilize Secure Software Development

In 2018, Marriott International announced that their company was subject to one of the largest data breaches in recent history1, with 500 million customers’ information being stolen after a large-scale hack. The company’s earnings lowered significantly as a result, and hundreds of millions of customers lost their trust in Marriott.

This data maelstrom has left many wondering: what went wrong?

An answer might be traced back to a fundamental issue with Marriott International’s website: a lack of secure development. Unfortunately, companies will create their websites without implementing safeguards to deter cyber thieves. These companies are unknowingly allowing their customer’s personal information to be stolen, deleted, or even extorted for financial gain, rather than taking the steps necessary to provide their customers a safe experience on their site.

Luckily, there is a practice that can be utilized by companies to help minimize the risk of malicious cyber-activity: Secure Software Development (SSD). The goal of this book is to help you learn what SSD is and why it matters, understand what differentiates this process from others, gain insight into what occurs during each stage of the cycle, and become aware of the vulnerabilities to software.
