March 13th Meeting ISSA Meeting – “Amp up your AppSec Game with a SDLC Program Self-Assessment”

Most companies operate in fiercely competitive markets where time-to-market is a critical business driver. In this environment, a secure software development lifecycle program (SDLC) program can be business-enabling by reducing:

  • Development cost because security is addressed early in the development lifecycle
  • Risk and cost of delayed deployments due to vulnerability fixes late in the lifecycle
  • Business and reputational risk caused by insecure software

Bob Austin of KoreLogic and Daniel Ramsbrock from Enigma Technologies will discuss how they used the OWASP OpenSAMM v1.5 SDLC Maturity Model to evaluate software security practices of a client firm to satisfy the secure software development requirements of their customers.

There is a small fee of $10 for this month’s event.
