Businesses need to be able to test applications in a manner that is both scalable and extensible. The problem is, applications outnumber security professionals on scales that we can’t even comprehend. How do you determine which one is going to be the “in” for the attacker? All of them could be “the one”… It’s important to identify which applications pose the highest risk and threat vectors to the business, so that you can focus your efforts accordingly. 

There has been a lot of news lately about high-profile attacks on Web applications. Hackers employ tactics like cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injections, which have been around for more than 20 years. Yet, both are prevalent attack vectors now more than ever before - which makes it that much more important for organizations to have a formalized application security policy for their developer teams.

John Jacott, security evangelist for Coverity, which offers a development testing platform, sheds some insight on nine important questions that should be central to implementing an application security policy in any organization.
