According to 2017 application security report published by cybersecurity ventures, 111 billion new software code lines are developed every year. Before reaching to the end users across the world, these codes have to be secured.
The software assurance report published by the U.S Department of Homeland Security states that almost 90 percent of vulnerabilities are reported every year in software design.
SEI researches show that 2 billion software codes are generated every week when only 75 percent of documented vulnerabilities are detected and undocumented data is expected to be in larger amount and the fact is so concerning.
Software developers ignorance to back up the security in a daily basis after completeng coding has found out to be a major cause of exposure to bug threats. It's common among developers to rush an app launch before testing properly.
According to IDC, over 18 million programmers exist in the world of which, two out of every three programmers are self-taught. But the problem is that only a minimal number of students graduate by taking at least a singlr cybersecurity course. Most engineers don't even understand the key security issues.
Cybersecurity ventures report that testing and analysis are going to experience a massive boom in 2017. Security is not where chances can be taken. And, it's better late than never.
