Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Get in the security mind-set, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Security.
…The first step at taking security seriously…is to get into the security mindset.…What does that mean?…That means the security has to be the concern of everyone, all the time.…It can't just be one person, the…development team, or even the whole IT department.…Everyone in your organization has to be smart about security.…Remember from the last movie, the weakest link…in your security is your level of security.…Any one person could be your…weakest link.…If the development team spends months on…security issues, but Larry in human resources has…his password on a sticky note stuck to his monitor, then how secure are you?…Or maybe Sally in accounting accesses a…password protected area from a cyber cafe while…backpacking in a foreign country, and then doesn't…log out of her account when she's done.…
You get the idea.…I'm not suggesting that everyone has to have the same security mindset.…Obviously developers and IT staff will be more…knowledgeable and responsible for security than average users.…But average users have to be mindful of security.…
