Secure Database AccessSecure Database Access
In most cases, the database is the single most valuable asset in your application, treat it as such! SQL injection is so common that it’s literally a joke, but it still happens all the time, always parameterize your queries and or use an Object-relational mapping (ORM) tool. Make sure that your database is locked down, authentication is secure and that communication with the database is over a secure channel. 


Security-Frameworks-and-LibrariesLeverage Security Frameworks and Libraries
A developer writing an application from scratch might not have sufficient knowledge, time, or budget to properly implement or maintain security features. Leveraging security frameworks helps accomplish security goals more efficiently and accurately. Secure coding libraries and software frameworks with embedded security help software developers guard against security-related design and implementation flaws.
