What is it and why is it important?

Change Management is the systematic approach to planning and implementing changes in an organization. The objective of change management is to ensure that any introduced change does not lead to reduced or compromised security. Lack of a consistent systematic change process and oversights can open the door to new vulnerabilities.

Change management should be included in software design, development, testing, evaluation, implementation, distribution, evolution, growth, ongoing operation, and modification.

  • Description
  • Code review
  • User acceptance testing /testing
  • Deployment
