      As a security officer, why is the software development life cycle important?  Explain what the SDLC is in addition to why this is important to the SO.  Use at least 2 points from the book and at least 2 points from the video.  You may use additional references in this discussion too.

      The software development cycle is important to security officers since security needs to be involved in every step of the process and not baked in at the last minute. The handling of data and systems that were previously in place will also need to be taken care of by security officers, by deciding how to retire equipment and what data can be discarded and the proper way of erasing the data. The SDLC is a software development framework that specifies the steps in the development process. The SDLC is important to security officers since not all officers may be programmers, but oversight and peer review can be implemented into the steps of coding to audit security measures. The steps being laid out for teams to follow help all members work together to create a program that is efficient and meets company and user needs.
