Abstract – Software Security is the need of the hour today, especially when we have so many of our day to day activities depending upon computers, internet and software’s. These technologies are of utmost importance even for the most basic activities like banking, trading, shopping, social media and communication, which uses different software tools to provide service to users all around the world. Migrating to this tech world has made it a necessity to provide a high quality of software with equally good security. Systems nowadays like a banking system deals with highly sensitive personal information, so providing software security is as much important as the development of the software. The course project required us to develop a secure banking system which helped us to learn about the various software security tools and the get knowledge regarding the current trends in the field, what can be the possible attack vectors , attack patterns and how to mitigate their effects and defend the system against various such factors.
The controversy between the FBI and Apple going into “dark debate” began when one of the suspect’s phone was found from San Bernardino attack, and the FBI was not able to gain access into the device. The FBI asked Apple to decrypt only that one device to continue their investigation in depth. They asked apple to redesign a new software that will give access to law enforcements to the entire encrypted data and as well as tracking any online communications in agreement to the legal authorities. However, the Apple CEO Tim Cook doesn’t agree to recreate whole new software because it could be very risky in terms on how their iOS is building and designed. However, If Apple does agree to the law enforcement decision then there could be
Our data is never at rest. Even when organizations depend on their database for storage, there is always copies of data somewhere else to be found. To service our men and women in the Army Reserves, data has to be manipulated at the local computer and then sent back to be stored back on the database. The very moment that data is moved and stored on a local machine for it to be manipulated is also the moment that the data is most vulnerable. Despite the concerted efforts to ensure data confidentiality the overall security depends efforts put forth by the weakest link. The insider threat is one of the hardest risk to mitigate, mainly due to their initial need to legitimately data access.
Advanced Research is a growing company in the medical research field and has made a great impact due to its recent success with research and development regarding pharmaceuticals.

This has been previously demonstrated by the defacement of Advanced Research’s public facing website as well as being a victim of Denial of Service attacks throughout a nine-month period in 2011.
Security Perspective: Security is characterized as the situated of courses of action and innovations that permit the managers of assets in the framework to dependable control who can perform what activities on specific assets. The who refers to the people, pieces of software, and so on that form the set of actors in the system who have a security identity; security specialists ordinarily call such performing artists a principals. The assets are the parts of the framework considered sensitive such as data elements and operations. The activities are the operations that the principals in the framework will need to perform on the assets. The resources(or assets), principals, and activities that need to be considered are frequently
Because the managers understood the strong culture and history of the company, they structured the project carefully to create a change in thinking before creating a change in software. The methods they used to survey purchasing people, involve representatives from all areas of the company, understand the process, work with suppliers, and select an ERP provider to grow with company and its future needs. All of these components helped to reduce the risk of the project.
Ensuring data security within your organization is crucial if you are to remain compliant against the increasing data security regulations, as well ensuring that you maintain a good relationship with your customers and prospects.

The most important elements of the Medical Center case are the fact that endpoint security becomes a challenging process. The challenges can are distinguished by comprehending the end point. The end point is a strategic method that the company uses to protect/secure their data networking system from being compromised or accessed by those not entitled this private information. When implementing a method for the appropriate end point, one must consider the device the software is being added too. For example, desktops and laptops are easier to add the software, but all smartphones are not compatible unless the phone has features like a Blackberry. The feature that the Blackberry offers that other smartphones do not is that their data can be connected to the business Virtual Private Network Systems. The VPN system employs encrypt data information to avoid others from viewing the content. It requires the users to have a password/pin to access this pertinent data information. Although, if the permits outside devices such as cellular devices to use this still poses a threat to the company. The threat is due to the device not having the proper protection such as the software or the VPN in place. In the business sector security/protection is a challenge due to the extensive interaction and the usage of different networking systems that can is compromised when put into the wrong hands.
Studies show that in today’s always online world, users are under a constant threat of infection from various forms of malware. Because the average user now relies on a computer to perform many tasks involving personal information and cannot necessarily be assumed to be savvy enough to protect themselves from all of these threats, the author recommends that operating systems be designed in such a way where security is considered a top priority. Various examples of best practices will be discussed, which when put into practice can help ensure less savvy users enjoy a secure and safe computing experience while still providing an enjoyable experience to users of all skill levels. We will look at some of these practices which have already been put to use by companies such as Apple and BlackBerry to see an example of how these practices are working out in the real world as well as how they can be improved upon.
Nowadays in this competitive and challenging business environment providing the solution for the complex business needs is increasing day by day. The timeframe to deliver the solution to the client /user is stipulated. Most of the project fail to deliver the solution, either the project were delivered late or exceeds the set budget. The failure rates also rely upon the methodologies followed to develop a project. Hence, the solution providers are changing the methodologies of developing software which can cope-up with changing business needs and market demand to provide highly valuable, more
Creating secure programming is the most obligation of the partners including with the product improvement cycle. While the security of programming can be ascribed to the advances picked or methods took after, consequent responsibility is credited to the individuals building it. Naturally secure advances are restricted and in situations when picked, the probability that they are executed safely is disengaged. This paper delineates the McKinsey report and it is outlines the significance of instructing individuals and making a culture that perspectives programming security as second nature is significant. The McKinsey report anticipated that the most significance corporate asset through the following year next 20 years would be ability and it is been 10 years since the report was distributes. When it is comes to programming security ability, this expectation couldn 't have been any more exact. Progression in security advances and changes in methods, for example, secure improvement life cycle and dependable figuring has quickened. information for the security administration useful for the creating programming frameworks with more security. Individuals without legitimate information of programming security can go around even the most precisely thoroughly considered security usage. Programming improvements ought to be included with partners or clients. They can tasked to construct the product safely and must take after the certain mandates. In this paper creator clarified
When we discussing security from the point of view an end user, the essential WiMAX security concerns are protection and data safety, clients need conformation that nobody can snoop on them and the data that sent over the connection is not altered. This paramount as wireless signals might be easily sniffed by outsiders and if the data is not secured, information leaks could happen.
The software security is very important issue among all the software. All the software’s must have the good security in order to prevent it from the different attacks from the internet like the viruses and many other attacks online which can harm the computer sufficiently. The main purpose of the security of all the software’s is to avoid the malicious attack of the other things. The main thing is the function of the software for which it can be made. All the software’s are made up for the special purposes and they must be used for that purpose only in order to get the best results from them. but if you want to get a task done by a software which is not made for that particular task and that the does not allows you do that particular task, then you have change its code from the software is being made. This is where the software security comes into the consideration that whether the software is secured enough and does not allow the user to do that or it is east for the user to do that task and change the code. If the software security is not good, it means that anyone can change the main purpose of the software task and use it for the illegal tasks. In this way, it will because the problems for the owner of the software as software introduced by the producer must be secured. But if the software is well secured then, the no one will be able to change its main file and the software can only
