Cigital, Inc. Announces Release of Building Security In Maturity Model
Oct 30 13
Cigital, Inc. announced the release of the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM), the software security measurement tool built on real-world data. Built in collaboration with HP, BSIMM-V helps organizations understand, measure, and plan their software security initiatives. Unlike software security methodologies based unproven theories and hunches, BSIMM-V is built on data directly observed in the field. BSIMM-V encompasses eighteen times the measurement data of the original study and reports on one new activity, bringing the total activity count to 112. Additional highlights from BSIMM-V: The BSIMM-V data set encompasses 161 distinct measurements (some firms measured multiple times, some firms with multiple divisions measured separately and rolled into one firm score). BSIMM-V shows that leading firms on average employ one full-time software security specialist for every 71 developers. BSIMM-V describes the work of 975 software security professionals working with a development-based satellite of 1,953 people to secure the software developed by 272,358 developers.
