Now here's an interesting development in the software security space.   
Seems that New York State is going to start requiring contracted  
application developers to conform with a minimum set of practices (as  
covered in the SANS "Application Security Procurement Language", http://www.sans.org/appseccontract/) 
.

IMHO, putting things like this into contract language is a good  
thing.  Even if the SANS list isn't the right one for everyone, it's a  
starting point.

Cheers,

Ken
