Project Talk: OWASP OpenSAMM Project presented at AppSec USA 2013

by Dinis Cruz, Pravir Chandra, Seba Deleersnyder, Michael Hidalgo,

Summary : The Software Assurance Maturity Model (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 resources provided by SAMM will aid in:
◊ Evaluating an organization’s existing
software security practices
◊ Building a balanced software security program
in well-defined iterations
◊ Demonstrating concrete improvements
to a security assurance program
◊ Defining and measuring security-related activities
within an organization
SAMM was defined with flexibility in mind such that it can be utilized by small, medium, and large organizations using any style of development. Additionally, this model can be applied organization-wide, for a single line-of-business, or even for an individual project.
Project Leader, Sebastien Deleersnyder, will be speaking about the project in depth in this talk.
