      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. Looking at true operational security, the risk is too great for software security to be just a line item in a compliance checklist.

In practice however, software security and IT compliance are deeply intertwined.
