Software Assurance Maturity assessment to support implementation of a Secure Software Development Lifecycle

Our client, a global multi-channel distributor of electronic, industrial and specialist technical equipment, was seeking to reduce risk and improve information security management of their software globally.

Approach

Using the OWASP Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM), we completed interviews to assess the current maturity and provided a maturity scorecard to confirm performance of all aspects of the Secure Software Development Lifecycle.

Results

We were able to highlight and assess key risks to the client and provide a roadmap of improvement actions. We also provided clear guidelines on secure coding to reduce future exposure through the development lifecycle.
