Managing risk is essential for every organization. However, significant opportunities may be lost by concentrating on the negative aspects of risk without bearing in mind the positive attributes. The objective of Project Risk Management: Managing Software Development Risk is to provide a distinct approach to a broad range of risks and rewards associated with the design, development, implementation and deployment of software systems. The traditional perspective of software development risk is to view risk as a negative characteristic associated with the impact of potential threats. The perspective of this book is to explore a more discerning view of software development risks, including the positive aspects of risk associated with potential beneficial opportunities. A balanced approach requires that software project managers approach negative risks with a view to reduce the likelihood and impact on a software project, and approach positive risks with a view to increase the likelihood of exploiting opportunities. Project Risk Management: Managing Software Development Risk explores software development risk both from a technological and business perspective. Issues regarding strategies for software development are discussed and topics including risks related to technical performance, outsourcing, cybersecurity, scheduling, quality, costs, opportunities and competition are presented. Bringing together concepts across the broad spectrum of software engineering with a project management perspective, this volume represents both a professional and scholarly perspective on the topic.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2004 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,0 (A), University Karlsruhe (TH) (Institute for Computer Science), 73 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: While computer scientists have developed and provided several powerful computer languages and techniques in the last decades, facilitating the development of modular, maintainable and e±cient code, software development itself has changed fundamentally. Software development today treats often with large-scale projects, immense development costs, and complex sys- tems which typically deploy multiple technologies and require multiple participants for their development. As with any large development exercise, the development of a complex system must be systematic and structured in order to manage this complexity, and in order to make possible the future maintenance and evolution of the system. Thus, while systematic and structured approaches are necessary for the development of such systems, software engineers have attempted to provide the structured methodologies and formalisms so often lacking in large software development projects. However, software development projects are still related with many di®erent high risks. These risks cause software engineering projects to exceed bud- gets, miss deadlines, or deliver less than satisfactory products. As an example, U.S. companies alone spent an estimated $59 billion in cost overruns on IT projects and another $81 billion on cancelled software projects in 1995 (Johnson 1995). One reason for these high costs is that managers are not using adequate measures and executing e±cient risk management assess and mitigate the risks involved in these projects. Although risk taking is essential to progress, and failure is often a key part of learning, the inevitability of risks does not imply the inability to recognize and manage risks to minimize potential negative consequences while retaining the opportunities for creating new and better software. Obviously, this risk management process is particularly di±cult for large-scale soft- ware projects and be handled in the same way as for small project, or just by providing more resources for all development factors.

"The increasing rate of technological change we are experiencing in our lifetime yields competitive advantage to organizations and individuals who are willing to embrace risk and the opportunities it presents. Those who choose to minimize or avoid risk, as opposed to managing it, set a course for obsolescence. Hall has captured the essence of risk management and given us a practical guide for the application of useful principles in software-intensive product development. This is must reading for public and private sector managers who want to succeed as we begin the next century." - Daniel P. Czelusniak, Director, Acquisition Program Integration Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology) The Pentagon "Since it is more than just common sense, the newcomer to risk management needs an intelligent guide. It is in this role that Elaine Hall's book excels. This book provides a set of practical and well-delineated processes for implementation of the discipline." - Tom DeMarco, from the Foreword Risk is inherent in the development of any large software system. A common approach to risk in software development is to ignore it and hope that no serious problems occur. Leading software companies use quantitative risk management methods as a more useful approach to achieve success. Written for busy professionals charged with delivering high-quality products on time and within budget, Managing Risk is a comprehensive guide that describes a success formula for managing software risk. The book is divided into five parts that describe a risk management road map designed to take you from crisis to control of your software project. Highlights include: Six disciplines for managing product development. Steps to predictable risk-management process results. How to establish the infrastructure for a risk-aware culture. Methods for the implementation of a risk management plan. Case studies of people in crisis and in control.

Threats to application security continue to evolve just as quickly as the systems that protect against cyber-threats. In many instances, traditional firewalls and other conventional controls can no longer get the job done. The latest line of defense is to build security features into software as it is being developed. Drawing from the author’s extensive experience as a developer, Secure Software Development: Assessing and Managing Security Risks illustrates how software application security can be best, and most cost-effectively, achieved when developers monitor and regulate risks early on, integrating assessment and management into the development life cycle. This book identifies the two primary reasons for inadequate security safeguards: Development teams are not sufficiently trained to identify risks; and developers falsely believe that pre-existing perimeter security controls are adequate to protect newer software. Examining current trends, as well as problems that have plagued software security for more than a decade, this useful guide: Outlines and compares various techniques to assess, identify, and manage security risks and vulnerabilities, with step-by-step instruction on how to execute each approach Explains the fundamental terms related to the security process Elaborates on the pros and cons of each method, phase by phase, to help readers select the one that best suits their needs Despite decades of extraordinary growth in software development, many open-source, government, regulatory, and industry organizations have been slow to adopt new application safety controls, hesitant to take on the added expense. This book improves understanding of the security environment and the need for safety measures. It shows readers how to analyze relevant threats to their applications and then implement time- and money-saving techniques to safeguard them.

This work is the definitive guide for IT managers and agile practitioners. It elucidates the principles of agile risk management and how these relate to individual projects. Explained in clear and concise terms, this synthesis of project risk management and agile techniques is illustrated using the major methodologies such as XP, Scrum and DSDM. Although the agile community frequently cites risk management, research suggests that risk is often narrowly defined and, at best, implicitly treated, which in turn leads to an inability to make informed decisions concerning risk and reward and a poor understanding of when to engage in risk-related activities. Moreover, the absence of reference to enterprise risk management means that project managers are unable to clearly articulate scope or tailor their projects in line with the wider expectations of the organisation. Yet the agile approach, with its rich toolset of techniques, is very well equipped to effectively and efficiently deal with the risks that arise in projects. Alan Moran addresses the above issues by proposing an agile risk-management process derived from classical risk management but adapted to the circumstances of agile projects. Though his main focus is on the software development process, much of what he describes could be applied to other types of IT projects as well. This book is intended for anyone who is serious about balancing risk and reward in the pursuit of value for their stakeholders, and in particular for those directly involved in agile software development who share a concern for how risk should be managed. Whilst a thorough background in risk management is not presumed, a basic level of familiarity with or exposure to agility is helpful.
