13 Sep Review Software Upgrade Procedures
Step 7: Review Software Upgrade Procedures
In the last step, you documented testing and validation requirements. In this step, it’s important to review software upgrades. Installation of a software upgrade has similar, yet unique requirements from the previous steps. In most enterprise environments, software updates and upgrades follow a specific change management routine. However, complete reliance on this procedure can lead to unintended oversight of cybersecurity issues. The change management process is generally focused on detecting errors and the auditing and logging of changes in the operational environment after the upgrade has been performed.
From the cyber perspective, this is not enough. As demonstrated in previous steps, significant effort is required to ensure a secure environment, not just an operational one. The question to be answered is “when” should the upgrade be performed during an application or system change. Should it be performed multiple times during the update?
Think through this issue thoroughly and make notes on your thought process. It is important that the risk analysis associated with an application or system change is conducted at the optimal time.
Note that there is no submitted assignment for this step. However, the research and corresponding notes related to this step will be applicable to the final report for Maria and the other executives. When this is complete, move to the next step, where supply chain risks will be considered.
Step 8: Review Supply Chain Risks
Following the previous steps relative to the supply chain and previous projects, it is time to thoroughly review risk within the supply chain.
Like many companies, your organization is dependent on a supply chain, so the software development process must include a supply chain risk management (SCRM) plan to minimize the impact of supply chain-related risks on business operations and the security of the infrastructures and data.
Note that there is no submitted assignment for this step. The identified supply chain risks will be reported in the next step.
Step 9: Document Supply Chain Risks
After review, it’s time to document supply chain risks. This portion of the overall report requires a two- to three-page narrative that addresses the following supply chain concerns:
Describe cybersecurity implications related to the procurement process.
Provide recommendations that would address these concerns.
Include appropriate supply chain risk management practices.
Where appropriate, cite references to support the assertions in the recommendations and conclusion.
Submit your report on supply chain concerns here for feedback.
Then, move to the next step, in which you will consider how the procedures of acquisition, procurement, and outsourcing line up in the organization.
