BSIMM

Where application security leaders come to reduce their software risk

Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) helps organizations plan, implement, and measure their software security initiatives. A BSIMM assessment provides an objective, data-driven evaluation that leaders seeking to improve their security postures can use to base decisions about resources, time, budget, and priorities. The annual BSIMM report offers analysis derived from hundreds of assessments across several industry verticals and serves as an important benchmark for security professionals, college curriculums, and analysts. BSIMM also includes a robust community where members share best practices and exclusive content, and collaborate with security peers.

What people say about BSIMM

"The BSIMM study is very aligned in terms of accessing industry best practices. It can be used to understand the level of maturity in a variety of development security activities as observed across multiple development teams. With rapidly accelerating software development practices, BSIMM12 data illustrates the actual shifts taking place in security development programs. With this information, organizations can adapt their own strategies to protect their organization and customers without dampening innovation.”

 Todd Wiedman, CISO at Landis+Gyr, a member organization of the BSIMM community

"Over the last 18 months, organizations experienced a massive acceleration of digital transformation initiatives. This has resulted in increased adoption of software-defined approaches for deploying and managing software environments and cloud technology stacks. Given the complexity and pace of these changes, it’s never been more important for security teams to have the tools which allow them to understand where they stand and have a reference for where they should pivot next. The BSIMM is a management tool for serving such a purpose. The BSIMM provides a unique lens into how organizations are shifting strategies for implementing software-defined security features like policy as code to align with modern software development principles and practices.”
