The 7 Qualities of Highly Secure Software
The 7 Qualities of Highly Secure Software provides a framework for designing, developing, and deploying hacker-resilient software. It uses engaging anecdotes and analogies—ranging from Aesop’s fables, athletics, architecture, biology, nursery rhymes, and video games—to illustrate the qualities that are essential for the development of highly secure software.

- Explains complex security concepts in language that is easy to understand for professionals involved in management, software development, and operations

- Highlights the parallels between the habits of effective people and qualities in terms of software security
