Developers, Security Pros Disagree About Application Security

A new survey from the Ponemon Institute finds that while half of security professionals believe their companies’ apps adequately address security issues, 70 percent of enterprise application development professionals disagree. In addition, almost 80 percent of developers surveyed said their companies did not have a good process for building security into applications, compared to 64 percent of security personnel who said the same.

“Gaps in perceptions between security practitioners and developers about application security maturity, readiness and accountability indicate why many organizations’ critical applications are at risk,” says the report. “A lack of collaboration between the security and development teams makes it difficult to make application security part of an enterprise-wide strategy and to address serious threats.”

Less than 15 percent of both groups said their applications meet security regulations for privacy and data protection and information security.
