Security and Privacy by Design

The objective of Security and Privacy by Design (SPbD) is to ensure that the best practices of secure engineering are followed during the development of any offering and to implement processes for the continuous assessment of the security posture of that product. Release engineering processes and timely remediation of any security incidents or discovered vulnerabilities via Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) mandates are also critical to reduce the risk of exposures and to protect against malicious actors who may compromise the system. IBM's secure development practices are described in detail in the Redbook [2]. IBM also has a formal process to track and respond to any vulnerabilities via the Product Security Incident and Response team [3].
