Application security is a complex topic, which software developers and even security professionals are trying to understand today. There was a need for a book to simplify the topic and all the jargon.
With this in mind, bestselling author Ted Harrington wrote the book Hackable: How to Do Application Security Right.
In an interview with Brian Pereira, Editor-in-Chief, CISO MAG, Harrington talks about his book, the genesis of the topic, and who will benefit from the book. He delves into the challenges of building security into applications at the beginning of the software development cycle. The book also breaks many misconceptions about application security.
Harrington is also the Executive Partner at Independent Security Evaluators (ISE), the company of ethical hackers famous for hacking cars, medical devices, and password managers.
