Upon completion of this course, each participant will be able to define software assurance terminology, compliance requirements, review software assurance principles, and gain an understanding of the impact of current threat trends on security software implementation.
Secure assurance refers to the ability to ensure security personnel, software implementers, purchasers, and users that they can have a level of confidence that software will consistently operate in accordance with its intended goals. It includes software security, which is the process by which the software can operate effectively and security even when it comes under attack. Ideally, assured software will not contain faults or weaknesses that can be exploited either by human attackers or by the insertion (intentional or unintentional) of malicious or poor code.
