IEEE-CS Meeting of the Month


“Injecting Security into the SDLC” 

How to Incorporate a Security Development Lifecycle into the Software Development Lifecycle

Presented by Shahid Shah

Tuesday February 24, 2015

Time: 6:30 PM – Networking and Pizza; 7:00 – 8:00 PM – Program

There is no cost to attend at McLean, Silver Spring

Experienced engineers intuitively recognize that security is an emergent property of our software and especially of complex systems. Just like we can’t add reliability or quality at the end of the process, we know that security must be fully integrated into the system and software development lifecycles. Saying it’s important and actually adjusting our engineering processes to properly accommodate security are two different things – it requires forethought, discipline, and tooling. Join master systems architect, Shahid N. Shah, who’s spent his career building high quality safety-critical software and solutions for several industries, as he describes the new CISQ Quality Standard, the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL), and how to properly integrate cybersecurity and data privacy into an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).

Shahid Shah is an award-winning Government 2.0, Health IT, Medical Device Integration software expert with over 25 years of technology strategy, software engineering, entrepreneurship, speaking, and writing experience.

Location Data: The presentation will originate at FDA White Oak facility in Silver Spring, MD, with video teleconferencing between.

Welcome to IEEE

We are looking forward to engaging the IEEE W-DC/N.VA computer society chapter membership. We are teaming with ASQ, ISSA-NOVA, DC SPIN, and other IEEE chapters and societies to reach more members at monthly meetings. We are reaching out to local colleges and universities,  INCOSE and IASA, and to Baltimore, West Virginia and Central Pennsylvania. We enjoy a technically diverse and deep set of interests that overlap with the interests of many applications areas. We appreciate feedback and will be acting on ideas we receive.

All IEEE-CS members are invited to attend partnering organization 2013 events, per links below.
