Software Assurance Competency Model

  • Abstract

    This Software Assurance (SwA) Competency Model was developed to create a foundation for assessing and advancing the capability of software assurance professionals. To help organizations and individuals determine SwA competency across a range of knowledge areas and units, this model provides a span of competency levels 1 through 5, as well as a decomposition into individual competencies based on knowledge and skills. This model also provides a framework for an organization to adapt the model's features to the organization's particular domain, culture, or structure. 



    "The IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) Professional Activities Board (PAB) has endorsed the SEI Software Assurance Competency Model as appropriate for software assurance roles and is consistent with A Framework for PAB Competency Models."
    —Dick Fairley, Chair of the Software and Systems Engineering Committee of the IEEE Computer Society Professional Activities Board (PAB)
