The main hurdle that prohibits organizations from embarking on an advanced application security program is knowing where to start. But once you’ve figured out your starting point and your key metrics, and worked with groups in your enterprise to create a strategy, your program still isn’t guaranteed to be a success. There are a number of common hazards companies typically fail to consider when implementing their program.

The three most common pitfalls to avoid if you want your program to succeed include:

1: Lack of policy enforcement

2: Lack of expertise on how to reduce risk

3: Failure to create a culture of security
