Mission: The Department of Homeland Security’s Software Assurance Program seeks to reduce software vulnerabilities, minimize exploitation, and address ways to improve the routine development and deployment of trustworthy software products.  Together, these activities will enable more secure and reliable software that supports mission requirements across enterprises and the critical infrastructure. Because software is essential to the operation of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and it is estimated that 90 percent of reported security incidents result from exploits against defects in the design or code of software, ensuring the integrity of software is key to protecting the infrastructure from threats and vulnerabilities, and reducing overall risk to cyber attacks.
