Software Assurance


The Software Assurance Program of the Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division co-sponsors SwA Forums semi-annually with organizations in the Department of Defense and the National Institute for Standards and Technology. The purpose of the forums is to bring together members of government, industry, and academia with vested interests in software assurance to discuss and promote integrity, security, and reliability in software.
