Webinar: Demystifying Secure Software Development

June 23, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET

Speaker: Tommy Ross, Senior Director, Policy, BSA | The Software Alliance

Emerging technologies like 5G networks, the Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence promise to transform our lives; realizing their tremendous potential and creating trust and confidence in their use will depend on the security of the software that powers them. Building on SAFECode’s secure development best practices publications, the BSA Framework for Secure Software, and other industry practices, the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) has developed a secure software development framework (SSDF) recommending a core set of high-level secure software development practices to ensure that software is secure by design.


  • A presentation of the SSDF from Karen Scarfone, NIST Associate.
  • Perspectives from:
    • Steve Lipner, SAFECode
    • Tommy Ross, BSA
    • Melinda Reed, US Department of Defense
    • Valecia Maclin, Microsoft
    • Prokopios Drogkaris and Apostolos Malatras, EU Cybersecurity Agency (ENISA)
    • John Banghart, Venable
    • Kevin Stine, NIST
