Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. How do information security teams support development teams with the tools needed to reduce vulnerabilities without interfering with developers delivery oriented priorities?

  2. Does your team believe and follow a shift left on security approach where security is integrated into the design and testing phases of the software development process?

  3. Does your software development organization implement test automation where software tests are run automatically and continuously throughout the development process?

  4. Will the mobile visual experience be identical to the desktop experience or will it be scaled down to meet the sizing requirements of the mobile device?

  5. Do your software development processes provide a regular means to gather and implement customer feedback on a consistent basis throughout the cycle?

  6. Have you properly defined the scope of testing for each phase, so that quality testing and assurance go hand in hand with product development?

  7. Have testing and systems audits been planned in order to provide verifications at the earliest appropriate points in the development cycle?

  8. Will you consider extending the implementation timeline to provide more time to address data engineering, report development, and testing?

  9. Should it professionals insist on slower development and thorough testing and expensive backup systems to help prevent problems?

  10. Is your testing stuck at the end of the development cycle and often short changed due to time overruns earlier in the lifecycle?

Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Development and Testing investments work better.

This Development and Testing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
