This is the second part of Tuesday’s session, with a hands-on approach.
**Original, Part 1 description, below**
Over the past year, NetSPI has been working on a new approach to manage and measure application security. By combining OWASP’s Software Assurance Maturity Model, traditional risk assessment methodologies, and experience developing security metrics, NetSPI developed a methodology that may be used to help organizations improve the way they manage and prioritize their application security initiatives. Once fully developed, this approach will be donated to OWASP either as an add-on to the existing SAMM project or as a new project intended to improve application security management. In this presentation, NetSPI will provide a detailed walk-through of the overall methodology as well as OWASP’s SAMM project. We will provide examples of the types of metrics and executive dashboards that can be generated by using this approach to managing application security and help highlight various ways this information can be used to further improve the overall maturity of application security programs.
