[SR2.3: 25] Create standards for technology stacks.
The organization standardizes on specific technology stacks. For the SSG, this means a reduced workload because the group does not have to explore new technology risks for every new project. Ideally, the organization will create a secure base configuration for each technology stack, further reducing the amount of work required to use the stack safely. A stack might include an operating system, a database, an application server, and a runtime environment for a managed language. The security frontier is a good place to find traction. Currently, mobile technology stacks and platforms as well as cloud-based technology stacks are two areas where specific attention to security pays off.
