Software Security Testing
Unlimited Attempts AllowedDetails
Taking all of the information that was discussed in the software security testing portion of the text this week, along with your own independent research, please prepare a 3-5 page analysis for your CIO which will be used to highlight the two different testing approaches which include penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
In your analysis, you will need to perform independent research beyond the course text materials in order to discuss and explain the elements of your evaluation.
- What are the differences in the two above approaches?
- What are the pros and cons of each?
- What authorization would you need to conduct each?
- What approach would you recommend in regard to application testing?
Your analysis should include the following pieces:
- Cover page
- References in APA format. Information on APA formatting can be found through the Maryville University Library citation libguide. (Links to an external site.)
- Checklist or appendix if necessary.
Keep in Mind: You will need to perform independent research beyond the course text materials in order to discuss and explain the elements of a comprehensive and well-thought-out position. Consider all facets that are necessary to be proactive and successful in evaluating not only what is happening now, but also the potential future landscape.
Your final Software Security Testing Analysis should include a cover page, introduction, conclusion, and references. These pages are not included in the total page count needed for this assignment. With your references, plan to put them in APA format. Information on APA formatting can be found through the Maryville University Library Citation Libguide. (Links to an external site.)
