Organizations today face increasing threats to their data, from ever-more nefarious, cutting-edge hackers who put any large company with a website or an app at risk. But there are steps that can be taken to thwart the theft of digital data: Ensure compliance to standards. There are several code security standards out there, but the question is, how do organizations understand what they mean and apply them to their own software development efforts. Identify security flaws across the organization. Code coming from your developers, COTS and (most suspect) open source can all have potentially damaging flaws. Stay informed with reporting and metrics. Organizations must measure and gauge the effectiveness of their defect reduction efforts.

Open source software has become an undeniable force in business. Open source plays an increasingly critical role in the infrastructure of both start-ups and established companies, and open source development models generate commercial grade software – often at a fraction of the cost of proprietary alternatives. In addition, open source licensing has spawned entirely new business models in which the principles of open source play a central role.Alongside these advances, the open source legal landscape has also continued to mature, providing improved clarity around many of the true risks of open source usage. Yet, despite these advances, misunderstandings and confusion regarding the business and legal impacts of open source continue to abound.

The level of concurrency in automotive systems is increasing rapidly. With multithreaded code on multicore processors, the balance between dynamic analysis of code and static analysis of design and code is tipping heavily in favor of the latter.While not a complete replacement for traditional testing methods, testing by analysis plays a major role in effective verification and validation - as reflected in many of the safety standards. ISO 13849 makes it explicit:"When validation by analysis is not conclusive, testing shall be carried out to complete the validation. Testing is always complementary to analysis and is often necessary."
