In the creation of startups based on Lean Startup solutions, you are often forced to make changes so that you can move from the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) phase to the PMF (Product/Market Fit) phase. Continuous modifications and improvements to your solutions can have a significant impact on their security; because with the introduction of new modules there may be gaps in the system. In addition, if you collect sensitive data as part of your solution (company secrets, personal data), you must keep their security in mind. Their violation may result in the loss of market advantage, reputation, and in the case of personal data, also with the imposition of high financial penalties.
Therefore, develop your solutions in cooperation with a partner who emphasizes both the use of an iterative approach based on the Lean methodology, as well as the security of your solutions, verified and adapted to the legal and technical requirements for IT solutions.
