Developing technology too quickly could result in security gaps

Technology development doesn't happen slowly. While organizations are creating new apps and products at lightning speed, moving so quickly through the development phase may have dire consequences, reports Fortune.

The cost of racing through the development cycle are copious amounts of buggy and flawed code left out in the open. With the abundance of cyber attacks at companies across every industry, faulty code provides an easy target for hackers.

If a hack does occur, information security professionals are blamed for the error. On top of that, a culture of tension is thus created between the developers and the IT professionals.

The dangers of high-speed development cycles will be a topic at Structure Security, a conference in San Francisco on Sept. 27 and 28. Diana Kelley, executive security advisor at IBM, and Yahoo CSIO Bob Lord are among the panelists discussing the issue.
