August 2013 White Paper
Robert J. Ellison

In this paper, Robert Ellison explains what project managers should consider because they relate to security needs.


Software errors can be introduced by disconnects and miscommunications during the planning, development, testing, and maintenance of the components.The likelihood of disconnects and miscommunications increases as more system components have to satisfy security requirements. Project managers should consider the additional communications requirements, linkage among life-cycle activities, and the potential usage environment as these items relate to security needs.
