Almost ALL research shows the origin of application attacks point to the lack of secure coding education, training, awareness, and skills. In fact, 70 percent of developers indicate they lack the necessary training to adequately secure the software they develop.

The facts show:

There are 22M software developers around the world (from Evans Data)

90% of security incidents result from defects in the design or code (from DHS)

21% of data breaches are the result of software vulnerabilities (from Verizon)

1 in 3 of newly scanned applications had SQL injection vulnerabilities over the past 5 years (from Cisco)

And there is a 100 to 1 ratio of developers as compared to application security personnel (from SANS institute)

Therefore, the best place to start is with the developers themselves!
