Secure programming is a way of writing codes in a software so that it is protected from all kinds of vulnerabilities, attacks or anything that can cause harm to the software or the system using it. Because it deals with securing the code, secure programming is also known as secure coding.
Secure code will help to prevent many cyber-attacks from happening because it removes the vulnerabilities many exploits rely on.
Secure coding is the practice of developing computer software in a way that guards against the accidental introduction of security vulnerabilities. Defects, bugs and logic flaws are consistently the primary cause of commonly exploited software vulnerabilities.
