its very smimple to fix all you have to do is get an audit done and emprove on the ave score 200/400. to do this to a score off 400 would stop alot off pppl useing the cracks in programs to do whot ever thay do.

also ppl are not useing a direct attack on ppl but rather useing other ppls web sites we vist as a point off entry ie cookies,poor audit scores, paying for ur padlock form digigroup and not doing your job properly.

you all are lasy devs and programers just because a program says it ok doesnt mean ur dont ur job.

New Problem same discussion
This article brings back memories of numerous discussions from 15-20 years ago about how to adhere to the SDLC in the fast paced world of the Internet.  I'm not truely sure we ever came up with a solution for that either, reference the iOS 11 update over the weekend.  Security can't be something we leave to the whim of happenstance theory.

Software development
I would agree with the article. There has to be a better way to develop application so there is incentive to develop secure applications.

It's simple just ask there will be a nominal cost, overheads and expenses

moving security to the "left" in SDLC will never occur without $ incentives-
Security in the SDLC has long be an after-thought. Why would it be any different? Business owners are rewarded for KPis on speed and releases over quality. Few firms today operate in reverse. Why? Because the marketplace demands more speed and more features faster than the day before. Impossible to change that macro environment. Best that could happen is that some combo of regulation comes in to move risk management and security to the "left" - its 10x cheaper to find issues in the source code than when to do it after the products are deployed globally, etc. Human nature will always take least resistent path. I am no fan of regulation but in this case there needs to be some to create value in security in the SDLC - incentive via $$ impact will get business owmners attention. GDPR is a great step- it has real teeth (albeit being super vague).
