Controlling Risk Through Software Code Governance
Today’s headlines are filled with stories about catastrophic software failures and security breaches; medical devices being recalled, gaming systems getting hacked, and credit card information becoming compromised. These events cost companies millions of dollars in brand equity, lost revenue and result in the erosion of customer loyalty and in the most extreme cases; deaths. Software code governance can help companies mitigate these risks. Organizations are able to proactively establish policies or thresholds around code quality and security, test against these policies early in the project lifecycle, and control risk through better visibility into areas of risk in the project or in the supply chain.
