It was once said that the last time one had full control of their software was right before they released it. This is ever more important as organizations move applications and services into a public cloud to support a mobile lifestyle. Clouds have been described as "a safe and secure private cloud", "a semi-trusted partner cloud", or "a wild wild west full and open public cloud". It's typically toward the latter in which the industry has been moving. Because of this, one must understand their Attack Surface and threat environment to ensure that they have focused on "building security in" to their application.
