Security breaches are expensive. They cost time and effort in litigation, remediation, and reputation restoration. Many IT decision-makers tend to focus their security efforts almost exclusively at the network perimeter. They overlook the business applications that run their day-to-day operations-especially partner portals, shopping baskets, or appointment scheduling, which let customers and vendors interact with internal systems. These applications are often packed with credit card and Social Security numbers, addresses, personal health information, or other data ripe for exploitation.

Software Security Assurance (SSA) is the sum total of the people, process and technologies that can be brought to bear on the problem of application risk in the business.  Just as Quality Assurance (QA) is the operational solution to the problem of product quality, SSA is the operational solution to the problem of software risk. It has three distinct elements: measurable reduction of risk in existing applications; prevention of introduction of new risks; and ensuring compliance with application security mandates.
This CIO Executive Guide details the steps all organizations must take in order to implement a successful SSA initiative - download it now to get started.
