Nowadays, Web applications are developing quickly. Software security has become an excessive challenge as the ratio of breaches is growing. The highest purpose behind the security breaches of software systems is the lack of security concern throughout the quick development stages. There are two views in software development, Product view and process view. Previous is concerned is what is to be developed and the latter is concerned with how it is to be established. In this paper we explain how the lack of concentration on security in software process improvement in to security vulnerabilities, and we propose an agile method for safe software design that needs team members to have received suitable security education and training.
