Software assurance has become a trending topic in the public sector. There has been a dramatic increase in application attacks and, as a result, many agencies are starting to receive mandates to secure their software. How exactly do we secure our software? Software assurance is much more than just buying security software: a holistic approach must be used to include security in every phase of the software development lifecycle.
Fortunately, a group of security experts from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) has developed a framework for agencies to adopt software assurance. The Open Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM) provides a roadmap for development shops of any size to build a software assurance program that fits their needs.
Join Carahsoft and Fortify as Eric Friese, Senior Software Security Consultant, provides information on:
* Why software assurance is an important piece of every software development lifecycle
* Best practices for developing a software assurance program
* Using the OpenSAMM to assess where your agency currently stands and how to get to the next level
