Software Security Assurance: Keeping Your Security Program on the Rails

  • Bruce Jenkins, Program Manager, HP
  • Tuesday, August 26th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

In working with dozens of organizations across all industries, a common theme has emerged as it relates to effective implementation of software security assurance programs: they generally are not effective. In fact, in numerous cases, programs are often shelved outright after several years of multiple implementation attempts. An obvious downside of this failure is a lack of return on security technology investments. The reasons for failure vary, but it often comes down to an absence of management commitment, a lack of focus, or simply insufficient awareness and education amongst stakeholders. This presentation explores why programs do not get off the ground or flounder after launch, and what can and should be done to prevent or correct those situations. Developers, project leads, architects and information security managers will benefit from discussions about the key elements to effective security program implementation.
