Software security refers to the set of measures and practices used to protect software applications from cyber attacks and data breaches.
Software security is a critical aspect of cybersecurity that focuses on protecting software applications, including those used in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, from potential cyber attacks and data breaches. It involves implementing specialized security controls and technologies to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. Some of the key measures used to protect software in IoT devices include secure coding practices, vulnerability scanning and testing, and patch management. Additionally, software security policies and procedures must be in place to govern the use, access, and management of software applications, including those that control IoT devices.
