As software increases in scope, and applies to a greater portion of our day to day lives, and as more organisations rely on common vendors and open source software, we are all exposed to greater risks as a result of both our knowing and unknowing use of software.  While many organisations attempt to push this risk to end-users and suppliers, there are limits to the application of EULAs and contract liability, especially in a wold where there is an increased reliance on the complex networked multi-vendor systems that underpin our electronic reality.
Trustable Software, is a an open project with a goal of understanding what we can trust software to do, when specific software can be trusted, and how to protect ourselves from risks associated with software being trustable.

In an effort to manage these risks at all levels of the supply chain, the Trustable project provides a collaborative environment where representatives from multiple industries can collaborate on measures to identify how and where software may be trusted, and investigate how they may insure against risks associated with the re-use of software for new purposes.  With scope extending to process, public constraints and legal and compliance, and with contributors in each area reviewing and extending upon each other’s work, Trustable applies open source development principles to establish frameworks for trust.
This evolving project's "Trustable Software Engineering Specification" will create measures against which we may demonstrate what state of the art software engineering practices and good governance are. We will consider the availability of and need to build a suitable insurance product or vehicle for Trustable Software.
This talk will focus on the work Trustable is doing and the state of the art in trusting software.
Trustable is a global project run through a UK company limited by guarantee and is a not for profit.  Trustable will be funded by member organisations and is actively seeking corporate membership. Community members are welcome and can sign up at www.trustable.io
