Keeping your app secure can sometimes feel a little daunting. But more often than not you can save time by following existing guidance rather than feeling you have to forge your own path. If someone else has done the hard work for you, then you should make the most of that.
Regulations are often seen as a bit of a box-ticking exercise, too. But follow them closely and you’ll find they can also aid you in your security efforts.
The worst thing you can do is get to the end of the development process and then try to work out if your app meets existing regulations. It’s a much better idea to keep them in mind from the outset.
Sites like OWASP are popular within the cybersecurity industry for a reason. The advice you’ll get there will go a long way in guiding you on the type of security your app needs.
Your end users might not be interested in the finer details of how you’re keeping their data safe. But a clear overview of your security measures will help you to build confidence with them.
