Our systematic literature review aims to survey research on regulatory and security standard requirements as addressed throughout the Software Development Lifecycle. Also, to characterize current research concerns and identify specific remaining challenges to address regulatory and security standard requirements throughout the SDLC. To this end, we conducted a systematic literature review (SLR) of conference proceedings and academic journals motivated by five areas of concern: 1. SDLC & Regulatory Requirement 2. Risk Assessment and Compliance requirements 3. Technical Debt 4. Decision Making Process throughout the SDLC 5. Metric and Measurements of found Software Vulnerability. The initial search produced 100 papers, and our review process narrowed this total to 20 articles to address our three research questions. Our findings suggest that academic software engineering research directly connecting regulatory and security standard requirements to later stages of the SDLC is rare despite the importance of compliance for ensuring societally acceptable engineering.
