The importance of Secure Coding Guidelines
Minded Security releases Secure Coding Guidelines and checklists for all your coding languages. In this way it is possible to give standard guides to your outsourcer or developer teams. These guidelines specify how to code securely in order to avoid the introduction of vulnerabilities in your code.
