Comment on Experts Reaction On White House Releases Post-SolarWinds Federal Software Security Requirements by James McQuiggan

The documents coming forthwith are guidance and not regulation. Unlike the FEDRamp compliance, where it’s mandatory, this supply chain security is written as guidance. It should be integrated with the FEDRamp compliance to ensure that all organisations providing software or software services to the government comply with the criteria in the soon-to-be-published guidance. Included in the guidance is a requirement of training. However, this training is not to develop secure software but to understand the guidance and how to implement it within the supporting organisation. If organisations can provide Secure Development LifeCycle (SDLC) training to their developers and integrate those concepts into their organisation’s culture, it will effectively improve the quality of the software. Having security top of mind and embedded into the culture for all users can reduce the risk of data breaches, leaks, and misconfigured software.
