In early October, we released the latest version of the BSIMM report, BSIMM9. While many things about the report haven’t changed much, it’s the new things that make it really exciting. After 10 years of study and 167 total firms measured, we’re seeing interesting trends in the state of software security initiatives and how firms go about performing software security.
BSIMM9 is the ninth version of the Building Security In Maturity Model, which describes real-life software security initiatives. BSIMM9 covers 116 activities (grouped into 12 general practices in four domains) performed by 120 firms we assessed within the last 42 months. Some firms got multiple assessments during that time (to see how their SSIs are maturing), and some firms had multiple business units assessed separately, so we ended up with 320 measurements.
