Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 969 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Application Security improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 969 standard requirements:

  1. Does your organization require security monitoring services that provide enterprise wide log retention and real-time security monitoring of network devices, applications, and endpoint protection solutions?

  2. Question to cloud service provider: Do you offer single sign-on for access across multiple applications you offer, or trusted federated single sign-on across applications with other vendors?

  3. Does your organization have a relationship with one or more third-party service providers (for example, gateways, web-hosting companies, airline booking agents, loyalty program agents, etc)?

  4. Does the software have any security-critical dependencies or need additional controls from other software (e.g., operating system, directory service, applications), firmware, or hardware?

  5. Is the software and application development process based on an industry best practice and is information security included throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC) process?

  6. What are the costs associated with updating existing hardware, firmware, software, and applications versus the costs of adding entirely new elements for a totally new security posture?

  7. Question to cloud provider: Do you offer single-sign-on for access across multiple applications you offer, or trusted federated single-sign-on across applications with other vendors?

  8. Is there a comprehensive business technology strategy that addresses alignment, infrastructure, applications, delivery, communications, security, support, governance, and funding?

  9. Consider an application that must select dynamically an encryption algorithm based on security requirements and computing time constraints. Which design pattern would you select?

  10. Are there some requirements for security that are structured as part of general releasability of an application and others that are as needed or custom for a particular release?

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Application Security investments work better.

This Application Security All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
