Benefits of Membership
The fifty-one firms participating in the BSIMM Project make up the BSIMM Community. A moderated private mailing list with 134 members allows SSG leaders participating in the BSIMM to discuss solutions with others who face the same issues, discuss strategy with someone who has already addressed an issue, seek out mentors from those are farther along a career path, and band together to solve hard problems (e.g., forming a BSIMM mobile security working group).
The BSIMM Community also hosts an annual private Conference where up to three representatives from each firm gather together in an off-the-record forum to discuss software security initiatives. In 2011, 21 of 42 firms participated in the second annual BSIMM Community Conference hosted at Skamania Lodge in Washington State. In Spring of 2012, the first BSIMM Europe Community conference held in Amsterdam included 17 firms with a presence in the European market.
The Members section includes proceedings from the Conferences, working group data, and the results of mailing list initiated studies.
