Project: Secure Software without the Experts
Helping software development teams deliver secure software without expert support.
Our unique and ground-breaking research examines how development teams achieve cyber-secure software. Our mission is to help the 100,000 developers in the UK, and others further afield, to become a step better at defending their software – especially those who don’t have access to security specialists.

We’re passionate at improving the ways that developers create secure software. This project at the Security Lancaster Institute of Lancaster University helps improve the security of software developed throughout Britain and the wider developer community. Working with teams in several companies, we have identified and trialled techniques to help any development team improve their software privacy and security, especially the large proportion of teams without access to software security experts.
