The OWASP SAMM maturity model allows you to assess your current security activities. It also helps you set out a strategy to improve the practices within your organization.

A modern Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) consists of numerous activities. Blindly adopting certain security activities is unlikely to yield the expected results. Instead, improving software security should be a deliberate action, following a well-defined plan. Unfortunately, building such a plan requires a lot of knowledge and expertise.

In this session, we will explore the OWASP SAMM maturity model. This model bundles a lot of knowledge and expertise around building secure software. Using SAMM, you can measure your current security practices regarding software development. It frames those practices in an organizational context. Furthermore, it helps you define a roadmap towards future improvements. Through group discussions and experience sharing, you will learn how to apply SAMM in your organization. If you are serious about improving secure development, this session is for you!

This session is intended for all stakeholders involved in software construction.
