OWASP SAMM (https://owaspsamm.org) is the prime maturity model for software assurance that provides an effective and measurable way for all types of organizations to analyze and improve their software security posture. Building security into the software development and management practices of a company can be a daunting task. There are many elements to the equation: company risk profile, organizational structure, different stakeholders, technology stacks, tools and processes, and so forth. Implementing software assurance will have a significant impact on the organization. Yet, trying to achieve this without a good framework is most likely leading to just marginal and unsustainable improvements.

OWASP Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) gives you an effective and measurable way for all types of organizations to analyze and improve their software security posture in 3 levels of maturity - thus creating a step-by-step software assurance navigation plan. It enables you to formulate and implement a strategy for software security that is tailored to the risk profile of your organization. In this talk, we give an overview of the new release of the SAMM model. After 10 years since its first conception, it was important to align it with today’s development practices.

We will cover a number of topics in the talk:
(i) core structure of the model, which was redesigned and extended to align with modern development practices,
(ii) measurement model which was setup to cover both coverage and quality
(iii) the new security practice streams where the SAMM activities are grouped in maturity levels.

We will demonstrate the new SAMM2 toolbox to measure the maturity of an example DevOps team and how you can create a roadmap of activities.
