      Key processes in most businesses are now vitally dependent on software. This shift towards software dependence has forced businesses to reexamine their application security strategy and prompted important questions about the security processes of their software suppliers. The move towards more trustworthy software and systems is reflected in the evolution and interpretation of key regulations and standards.
