Contemporary development of information systems for service delivery is at the present a matter of bringing together use of Web and mobile applications. However, this advancement in the field of computing is happening at the expense of increased security risks to the system users and owners. This is due to the fact that the advancement in systems security controls is not taking place at the same pace. In the converged Web and mobile applications, developers lack formal development standards for security design and verification. As a result, applications are built with ad hoc implementations of security controls depending on context of usage.
