Presentation: Software Security Metrics

Software Security Metrics: More often than not, company executives ask the wrong questions about software security. This session will discuss techniques for changing the conversation about software security in order to encourage executives to ask the right questions – and provide answers that show progress towards meaningful objectives. Caroline will discuss a progression of software security capabilities and the metrics that correspond to different levels of maturity. She’ll discuss an approach for developing key metrics for your unique software security program and walk through a detailed example.
