        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. Having a mature software security approach is vital to information security and can facilitate broader enterprise IT compliance. This paper focuses on the overlap between compliance and software security. At first glance, this overlap is limited to the specific software security requirements posed in standards such as the PA DSS. In practice however, software security and IT compliance are deeply intertwined.
