"Graff and Van Wyk have provided a book which will teach generations the basic principles in designing and writing software code ready for the Internet and its threats. I am reminded of an old saying, "give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime." Basic secure coding practices are not a cut, copy, and paste exercise but, a process with defined fundamentals and principles, that practiced, will result in less security vulnerable software. Professionals have been waiting years for this book; a must read."

--- Mike Higgins, VP, Global Security Practice, Tekmark Global Services and former CEO, Para-Protect Services
