The advanced technological need, exacerbated by the flexible time constraints, leads to several more design level unexplored vulnerabilities. Security is an extremely vital component in software development; we must take charge of security and therefore analysis of software security risk assumes utmost significance. In order to handle the cyber-security risk of the web application and protect individuals, information and properties effectively, one must consider what needs to be secured, what are the perceived threats and the protection of assets. Security preparation plans, implements, tracks, updates and consistently develops safety risk management activities. Risk management must be interpreted as the major component for tackling security efficiently. In particular, during application development, security is considered as an add-on but not the main issue. It is important for the researchers to stress on the consideration of protection right from the earlier developmental stages of the software. This approach will help in designing software which can itself combat threats and does not depend on external security programs. Therefore, it is essential to evaluate the impact of security risks during software design. In this paper the researchers have used the hybrid Fuzzy AHP-TOPSIS method to evaluate the risks for improving security durability of different Institutional Web Applications. In addition, the e-component of security risk is measured on software durability, and vice versa. The paper’s findings will prove to be valuable for enhancing the security durability of different web applications.
