In a recent project, there were several open source and over the counter products involved. The task at hand was to make sure that not only did the components integrate seamlessly, but securely as well. Using several of the best practices discussed in the ISSA monthly meetings and annual Symposium helped our organization develop processes and procedures to ensure a successful outcome. We created a concise policy for open source software; reviewed and revamped our acquisition process for software; and made targeted modifications to processes, tools and training. The customer was pleased with our results.
