“Threat modeling and code review. You’ve got to do all four of those, and most people are only doing one.”

“Assessing vulnerabilities and performing comprehensive threat modeling is essential. It’s not just about individual weaknesses; you must consider how these holes in your system can be exploited by attackers across different layers. Neglecting this holistic approach may leave you vulnerable to basic attacks, as seen in the Capital One case.”

“Tools play a significant role. In the realm of software security, it's possible to integrate static analysis into your development pipeline. This way, as your developers commit code, a fundamental layer of security is applied to the source code.”
