Web Service Security

I am currently developing a web service and I would like to know if anyone has any ideas on how to secure a web service.
For example, if a hacker tries continuously logging in until they get in. How do I code my web service to prevent that situation?

From our experience, programmers who are uneducated about security issues could be the main reason for unsecured Web application.More education along with specific coding examples in commonly used programming languages  are the best way to have a secure Web application.

You have to do two things; 1) write software that proactively implements parameter checking to insure that the vulnerability is not written into the software, which takes training and standards, and 2) testing your software for the presence of these vulnerabilities.
