September Meeting Topic:
Software Development: The Next Security Frontier
An Introduction to the CSSLP Certification

Glenn Johnson, Certification Consultant

According to Gartner Group, over 70% of security software vulnerabilities exist at the application layer, yet there has been little focus on this critical security area.

    • Why do we need secure software?
    • What does it take to build secure software?
    • Developing a professional standard in software development.
    • Elements of effective software security programs.
    • Security programs are valuable both for commercial software and in-house development
    • About the Certified Software Security Lifecycle Practitioner Certification

About Glenn Johnson
Glenn Johnson is a senior certification consultant for (ISC)2.  Prior to joining (ISC)2 Glenn  amassed more than 15 years  of experience as a business development  director in the shipping, tracking, and database delivery software solutions.

Glenn transitioned to the (ISC)2  team in the beginning of 2007 and this past November  took over business development for the CSSLP (Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional).  In March of 2009 he built the first/beta CSSLP Education Seminar by inviting organizations like Boeing, EDS, Raytheon, and many others to provide industry input and critique to the existing CSSLP Seminar for final release. The original version was created with the input of ISSA, Microsoft, The Department of Homeland Security, Symantec, Cisco, Xerox, SAFEcode, BASDA, SANS, DSCI, and SRA International.

The CSSLP Education Seminar is now complete and Glenn is working with many major organizations, federal integrators, as well as small private companies to establish security initiatives in the software development lifecycle, or simply to convey their existing proficiency through certification.
