Understanding BSIMM and SAMM

The Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) is designed to help you understand, measure, and plan a software security initiative. The BSIMM was created by observing and analyzing real-world data from 67 leading software security initiatives. In a similar vein, the Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) was created to help organizations design and implement a software security strategy tailored to specific risks facing the organization. But different organizations have different structures, and all of the best guidance in the world can't help you if it can't be incorporated.

Incorporating BSIMM and SAMM

Incorporating the BSIMM and SAMM into your improvement plan can be a rocky process, especially when you consider that these standards will be different than what you have at your organization, and that organizations may have different goals. That's where Aspect Security can help. Because of our deep experience, we can help you through the governance, construction, verification, and deployment stages.
