Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 162!

The SPaMCAST 162 features my interview with Rafal Los discussing security and key process indicators for measuring secutity.

Staying active and contributing to the community - he participates in OWASP, the Cloud Security Alliance and other industry groups. His blog, Following the White Rabbit, with his unique perspective on enterprise security and cloud has amassed a following from his industry peers, business professionals, and even the media and can be found at

Prior to joining HP, Los defined what became the software security program and served as a security lead at a Global Fortune 100.  Los also contributed to the global organization's security and risk-management strategy internally and with their customers.  Rafal prides himself on being able to add a 'tint of corporate realism' to information security.
