BSA and Its Members Committed to Secure Software

Roll Call, March 7, 2023.

By Gopal Ratnam

BSA | The Software Alliance Policy Director Henry Young discusses how software companies that sell to commercial enterprises take software security seriously.

Well-established software companies that sell to commercial enterprises “do take security seriously and invest heavily in it,” said Henry Young, policy director at BSA |The Software Alliance, a trade group that represents companies including IBM, Microsoft, Salesforce and others.

“If there is a path that we think will lead to more secure software, I think we're totally on board,” Young said.

Shifting liability to companies for making software with poor security features may help the industry overall by curbing “fly-by-night operators” who are not interested in long-term market presence, Young said.
