eWeek’s Top 15 most influential information people in information security reports “No list of this sort is complete without the inclusion of Michael Howard, co-author of Microsoft’s SDL (Security Development Lifecycle), the mandatory software coding approach that builds security into every conceivable layer. Howard’s work helped make Windows Vista Microsoft’s most-secure operating system ever and helped harden Internet-facing products against hacker attacks.
