Secure Software Development Lifecycle

Integrate security testing activities into an existing development process

Key benefits of secure SDLC

Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDLC) is enrichment of currently existing SDLC with cyber security-focused exercises on each of its stages. We provide advisory, technical implementation and/or operation of each.

Lowered the cost of fixing bugs and vulnerabilities in software

Automated due to integration with CI/CD pipeline

Increased awareness of professionals involved in SDLC

Potential activities we do help with:

01 Threat Modelling

We enumerate and evaluate events that can affect operations and assets tied to your business service.

Key benefits:

  • Produces an abstract of the system highlighting its most vulnerable layers
  • Profiles potential attackers and their TTP (tactics, techniques and procedures)
  • Lists fixes and mitigations effectively minimizing threat surface

02 Static Application Security Testing

We analyze your code in automated manner through our toolset or support you in tuning your SDLC process with SAST step.

Key benefits:

  • Greatly reduced cost of fixing vulnerabilities and bugs
  • 100% code coverage
  • Fully automated and quick
  • Embeds quality testing

03 Manual Code review

Our experts manually review your code to look for vulnerabilities and improper implementations in business logic that is not possible to understand by automated tools.

Key benefits:

  • Completes (if paired with SAST) image of your code security
  • Can be applied in more modular manner if the focus is into testing of specific functionality

04 Software Composition Analysis

We identify the volume and characteristics of open source components within an application.

Key benefits:

  • Identifies open source elements impacting your application from security and licensing manners
  • Depending on toolset, provides uncommon paths of risk reduction for must-have vulnerable elements

05 Dynamic Application Security Testing

We create, improve or re-develop your process, advise and implement necessary toolset and help you interpret outcome identifying false positives.

Key benefits:

  • Fast and scalable method of vulnerabilities identification
  • Easy to automate
  • Not language-dependent
  • Can run in continuous manner

06 Penetration Testing

We perform cyber security assessments of web-based applications, mobile applications, infrastructure, and thick clients.

Key benefits:

  • Margin number of false-positives
  • Reflects current trends and exploits in live scenarios
  • Often required by client, audit or internal requirement
  • Each vulnerability is proof-concepted

07 Risk Assessment

We assess your IT system from its business purpose perspective.

Key benefits:

  • Embeds likelihood into the landscape highlighting most common breach scenarios
  • Outcome reflects uniqueness of the system business purpose
  • Risks can be produced using your methodology allowing for outcome integration with your risk registrar

08 Infrastructure as a Code

We review your deployment code to check for existing flaws and misconfigurations that may produce vulnerabilities in deployed infrastructure.

Key benefits:

  • May be implemented in CI/CD pipeline
  • Fills the gap that is often overlooked
  • Quick to perform

09 Vulnerability Scanning

We perform security scan of your infrastructure to determine open services and enumerate their vulnerabilities.

Key benefits:

  • Does not impact system stability
  • Depending on the needs or assets criticality can be implemented into continuous mode

CASE STUDY

Implementation of a Secure Software Development Lifecycle

We implemented specific parts of SSDLC process according to requirements from our customer (financial institution). The scope of implementation included:

1. Threat Modelling

2. SAST and SCA

3. Penetration testing

We designed the process, tuned existing tools to meet client’s requirements and also proposed changes in tooling to be able to flexibly implement other parts of SSDLC process in organization in the future.

ABOUT ME

Cybersecurity is not an option, it is a must have for every modern organisation

Tomasz Wojciechowski
HEAD OF CYBERSECURITY

I’m a cybersecurity enthusiast with over 15 years of professional experience. During this time, I provided many cyber services for various customers from all around the world. At Spyrosoft, I’m responsible for cyber services, team management, and client cooperation. I believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ in cybersecurity, as services must be customised and tailored to the sector, infrastructure and organisation’s profile. I focus on practical aspects of cybersecurity to offer reliable service that is understandable and provides a clear value to the client.
