Build Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) – Practices from Seventy Eight Organizations
Software Engineering Institute
The Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) is the result of a multi-year study of real-world software security initiatives. It is built directly from data observed in 78 software security initiatives from firms in nine market sectors. The best way to use the BSIMM is to compare and contrast your own initiative with the data about what other organizations are doing as described in the model. You can then identify goals and objectives and refer to the BSIMM to determine which additional activities make sense for you.
The BSIMM data show that high maturity initiatives are well-rounded—carrying out numerous activities in all 12 of the practices described by the model. The model also describes how mature software security initiatives evolve, change, and improve over time.
In this podcast, Gary McGraw, the Chief Technology Officer for Cigital, discusses the latest version of BSIMM and how to take advantage of observed practices from high-performing organizations.
