Vincent Delaroche to discuss true business impact of software risk and system downtime


New York – May 17, 2016CAST, a leader in software analysis and measurement, today announced its presence at the Software Risk Summit 2016: Preventing Software Disasters from Hitting the Market, taking place June 9th in New York City. CAST Chairman and CEO, Vincent Delaroche, will present on a panel of distinguished experts regarding the impact poor software risk management has on business operations and customer satisfaction.

“Software risk is often overlooked, but it is frequently the root cause of issues that business and IT executives continue to pay a very high price for,” said Vincent Delaroche, Chairman and CEO of CAST. “Many of the most recent publicized breaches were actually not security related, but caused by wrongly engineered software – something that can be prevented through regular software analysis and measurement.”

The Software Risk Summit 2016 is a one-of-a-kind industry event that drills-down into the causes of software risk and best practices for preventing software outages and data breaches. Additional panelists include:

  • Dr. Paul Nielsen, Director and CEO of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI)
  • Kevin Fedigan, CIO of Broker-Dealer Services and Asset Services at BNY Mellon
  • Benjamin Rehberg, Managing Director at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG)

The event keynote will be delivered by journalist and industry commentator, Rana Foroohar. Rana is an assistant managing editor at Time and the magazine’s economic columnist. She appears regularly on CNN as a global economic analyst, covering the intersection of economics, business, technology and politics. Her new book, Makers and Takers, was released today.
