Abstract

Apps present a significant security risk. Developer inexperience of security is a major contributor to this risk. Based on interviews with a dozen app security experts we identify that most app programmers simply do not care about security. Only by working on the factors influencing programmers’ motivation, and afterwards developing their whole system security skills, shall we shall we begin to see the kind of secure apps that industry needs.
