Then find your goals...

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

Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Static Application Security Testing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. Do you apply independently validated Security and Risk Management controls over the testing process, all relevant people involved, key aspects of target systems and any client data affected?

  2. Has the application been tested to be fully functional residing on its associated operating system/middleware platform configured with a recognized security configuration benchmark?

  3. Static analysis is an essential part of Application Security testing, and what if your team lacks the resources or skills to apply SAST effectively across your full portfolio?

  4. What are the interactions that you find interesting between security-testing tools and other types of automated tools, automated build tools, automated performance managers?

  5. Are any ambiguous terms as processing must be secure and access is only granted to authorized personnel identified and clarified to be specific and testable?

  6. Has the infrastructure hosting the application applications undergone a Vulnerability Scan conducted by an independent security testing organization or team?

  7. Will electronic sites allow the recruiter to place a link or an additional source of information, like a description of the local community on website?

  8. Are Application Security tests performed for all crown jewel applications, and do you avoid wasting resources on low-risk/ low-priority applications?

  9. Is further research needed to better gage the metrics and gain insights into deployment directions, as well as engage the other stakeholder groups?

  10. How long does it take for your organization to deploy a patch to a critical Application Security vulnerability for systems already in use?
