About this talk
One more time: Why Software Security Is Not Different from Software Quality
John Keane, the Software Angel of Death, will conduct a no-holds-barred webinar on why Software Security Is Not Different from Software Quality.
The presentation is primarily oriented to those who are so focused on Cybersecurity that they overlook the need to focus on quality software and the inherent need to produce software that satisfies the mission as well as be secure.
- Historical examples will be provided
- An assessment of selected standards with their known capabilities AND limitations will be discussed
- An in-depth discussion of Software Assurance will be used to tie security to quality/operability
The primary purpose is to prove that the objectives of software quality and software quality are equivalent and that, in many cases, developers can achieve both through the implementation of single rules/principles.
CISQ & OMG software standards are important to preventing poor software practices from crippling IT Enterprise systems both at the federal and commercial levels.
