As already mentioned in the previous measure is it good to have security related development tasks and best practices documented in the coding guidelines. In this way the general information from different sources can be adjusted to the startup’s needs and new employees have a comprehensive source of information. The guidelines should be reviewed at least annually. For some programming languages or frameworks, like Ruby on Rails, there already exist well written coding guidelines which can be taken over or adapted to the own needs.
