In an agile development model, software is developed in incremental, rapid cycles with the goal of continuous improvement, fast flaw remediation and improved customer experience. Agile models advocate adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, fast iterations, and rapid response to change.
Can modern product assurance programs be designed to keep pace with agile development? At Lightship Security, we think so. In fact, we’ve made it our mission: Certification at the speed of development. We believe that a shift to “agile assurance” is a necessary step towards restoring trust and credibility to the cyber supply chain.
In this post, we are concerned with options to improve assurance outcomes provided by internationally adopted product certification programs. As a company, our focus is on developing solutions that support a modernized approach to product certification. This includes moving our industry towards agile assurance using contextual automation and supporting methodologies – we want to disrupt product certification as we know it.
