It is necessary to explore all of the stakeholders involved within a software’s development to understand the pedigree of the software from a security standpoint. This will then allow a security professional to make informed decisions toward risk management.
Explore where and how the Adobe reader software is developed. In 500-750 words, report your findings. Make sure to address the following:
- Where does Adobe indicate their product is located/headquartered?
- Where is the software really developed and by whom?
- How many are involved in the development of Adobe and what threat might that pose to end users?
- What best practices should be considered during the development of the software to reduce security issues in reference to Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)?
