Cyber Resilience Summit

The Crossroads of IT Modernization and Cybersecurity


The Consortium for IT Software Quality hosts the Cyber Resilience Summit annually in Washington, DC to brief Federal and State IT leaders and policy makers on standards for measuring risk and quality in software. The program focuses on standards and best practices for measuring risk and quality in IT-intensive programs from the standpoint of productivity, software assurance, overall quality and system/mission risk. Discussions expose proven methods and tools of incorporating such standard quality metrics into the IT software development, sustainment and acquisition processes.
