Putting Theory Into Practice: The Results of a Practical Implementation of the Secure Development Life Cycle
Software engineering is defined as a discipline concerned with all aspects of software production from inception to the evolution of a system. It has often been referred to as the "Cradle-to-grave" approach to producing reliable, cost-efficient software delivered in a timely manner that satisfies the customer's needs. However, with the introduction of the Internet and the World Wide Web, software engineering has been required to make changes in the way that new software products are developed and protected. In order to protect systems from hackers and saboteurs in a global society where e-commerce, e-business, and e-sharing are the "Norm", professionals should have sound knowledge in methods to protect data.
