As 2011 proved to be the year of the hack, the need for secure application coding is greater than ever. Application security requirements are heightening in the wake of critical application breaches, meaning knowledge and training must rise to ensure safe coding. Previously, attacks used application vulnerabilities to cause embarrassment and disruption. But now these attackers are exploiting vulnerabilities to steal data and much more than 8 out of 10 applications failed to pass OWASP top 10 when first tested. More than half of all developers received a grade of C or lower on a basic application security assessment. It is amazing infographic presentation for Veracode.
