The Security Playbook: A CTOs Guide to Integrating AppSec For Fast-Growing SaaS Companies

August 26, 2021 | By: Alex Hewko

Proactive Vs Reactive Security:

For most, the hectic ride of a start-up or a scale-up does not provide the time to build systems and processes properly. The same can be considered for an application security program. As you juggle between building the product and supporting new clients, there is very little time to properly build a security program. Instead, you might find yourself running ad hoc and random security tasks just to support particular clients or certain compliance mandates. It’s like ‘Application Security Whack-A-Mole.’

You might face questions like:

  • What is the best security testing solution for me?
  • Am I logging and auditing efficiently?
  • When is the best time to integrate a WAF?
  • Is it worth training my developers on security?

We have created a security playbook to cover the building blocks of typical application security programs. We’ll also identify at which stage of your growth they would be most useful.

Planning ahead allows for a more strategic and thoughtful application security program with more favourable timeframes and budget requirements.

Here at Software Secured, we have collected the information in this guide through a decade of working with start-ups and scale-ups. We hope that the information provided will help to bring your company to the next level in application security to support your growth and maximize your exit.
