From 2015 to 2021, the number of new vulnerabilities per year in the National Vulnerability Database grew from 6,487 to 20,139. This increase in vulnerabilities may be due to a significant skills gap when it comes to secure software development. In 2019, a review of the top 20 computer science schools found that of the schools listed, only one had security as an undergraduate degree requirement for Computer Science. Simply put, software developers are not being taught secure coding practices at colleges and universities, and with a significant number of organizations failing to invest in any secure coding training whatsoever, even some of the most seasoned developers in the industry may have little to no awareness of secure coding concepts.
