Summary : SAMM is an open framework to help organizations formulate and implement a strategy for software security that is tailored to the specific risks facing the organization. The building blocks of the model are the three maturity levels defined for each of the twelve security practices. These define a wide variety of activities to reduce security risks and increase software assurance. Additional details are included to measure successful activity performance, understand the associated assurance benefits, estimate personnel and other costs.
