Seminar on Measuring and Managing Software Risk, Security, and Technical Debt to Take Place in Austin, TX
Will address the risk and cost of the rising number of security breaches

Needham, MA - 07-29-14 - The Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the seminar, "Measuring and Managing Software Risk, Security, and Technical Debt" at the Sheraton at the Capitol in Austin, TX on Wednesday, September 17th. The event will be co-sponsored by The Center for Advanced Research in Software Engineering (ARiSE), University of Texas (UT).

The issue of software risk and security affects everyone. With talks such as "The State of Software Process and Quality in the State of Texas" from Herb Krasner, Principal Researcher, UT ARiSE; "The Global State of Software Structural Quality: Do Method and Source Matter?" by CISQ Director, Dr. Bill Curtis; "New Findings on Measuring the Effectiveness and Quality of Agile Projects," by Dr. William Nichols, Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University, and an update on the latest developments in the national cyber-security community by Robert Martin, Director, Common Weakness Enumeration Repository, Mitre Corp, this master seminar will focus on the importance of good quality software in all domains.

The day will conclude with an explanation of the standardization work CISQ has been a part of for automating the measurement of functional size and source code structural quality. Future work on standards for measuring technical debt and quality-adjusted productivity will also be described.

"If you're concerned about software security, technical debt, and other aspects of software quality, you need to come to this event," said Bill Curtis, Director, CISQ. "We're going to have thought leaders from The University of Texas, the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, Cutter Consortium, IBM, and Mitre explain how your organization can avoid the pitfalls of software security weakness and the devastating cost and liability of technical debt."

The registration fee for this event is $50. All interested parties are invited to attend. To view the full agenda and register, visit www.it-cisq.org/it-products-and-software-quality. To influence standards work for software quality, learn more about becoming a member of CISQ at www.it-cisq.org
