3.1.3 Systems development process

All information systems software should be developed in a controlled and systematic manner according to company standards. The quality and efficiency of the data processed, and the possible reconfiguration of the system can all be affected by an inadequate development process. The risk of security exposures and vulnerabilities is greatly reduced when the systems development process is itself controlled.
