Privacy and security are complex topics, raising a variety of considerations and requirements that can be challenging to implement in software development. Determining the security and privacy related factors that have an influence on software systems development and deployment project outcomes has been the focus of extensive and ongoing research over the past two decades. To understand and categorize the factors that have an impact on developers’ adoption and implementation of privacy and security considerations and practices in software development, we carried out a narrative review of the literature. The resulting mapping of factors provides a foundation for future interventions targeting organizational and individual behavior change, to increase the adoption of privacy and security practices in software development.
