4116 - Reducing Software Vulnerabilities – The 'Vital Few' Process and Product Metrics

Monday, September 25
9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Defective software is insecure. During this session, we'll demonstrate how disciplined agile teams consistently deliver software solutions with very few vulnerabilities, by making quality the No. 1 goal of every project.

Topics include:

  • Impact of common violations of good coding practices on security and maintainability.
  • Ensuring that software code has none of the top 25 most dangerous security violations.
  • How "excellent" code can reduce maintenance cost to as little as 5 percent of development cost.
  • Causes of sub-optimal results, such as a "deliver now, fix later" culture, unacceptable increases in technical debt, and total ownership cost.
  • How high maturity optimizing process provides the "vital few" process and product metrics to reduce software vulnerabilities.
  • How to build and maintain agile software development teams and achieve results better than the best in class.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Achieve results better than best in class with secure software development agile teams.
    • Impact of common violations of good coding practices on security and maintainability.
    • Ensuring that software code has none of the top 25 most dangerous security violations.
