The problem is that with the growing demand and changing requirements, web developers often find it hard to keep up. Some development aspects tend to be overlooked, and security is a major culprit. While security is increasingly becoming an important part of development, most web developers are not following some basic security principles.

Thanks for your input! The importance of security will only grow more and more as technology continues to evolve but hopefully with a change in more developers using secure development practices as a day to day practice it will become less difficult to keep up. I think this is also where companies can integrate the use of security champions who are developers with a large focus on security, and can take some of the load off of those who aren't security focused.
