Very useful book on organizing security-related development process. Although, sometimes it mentions Microsoft technologies, but most of times authors discuss generic security-related issues, processes, etc.
Book covers wide area of topics, and would be very useful for sr. engineers, development managers, etc.

This is a slightly out of date book, but is a good starting point for projects wanting to incorporate better security into their development life cycle.
The way forward.
