In light of the increasing volume of cyber threats, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), in partnership with Cigital, has released a new cybersecurity assessment tool for CTA members based on the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM). The online tool will help companies measure and improve their software security initiatives and compare their systems against industry peers.
“Cybersecurity is an increasing global concern,” said Brian Markwalter, Sr. VP, Research and Standards, CTA. “This tool will give companies a comprehensive and cost-effective way to review their cybersecurity capability within their product development cycle. Although there is much to be done, our industry is committed to addressing the serious and growing concern of security breaches in consumer products.”
