Guidance on the risks associated with the use of open source software products.

This guidance seeks to assist a range of IA professionals in exploring the risks associated with the use of Open Source Software (OSS) products. It does so by prompting a number of ‘whole lifecycle’ issues and questions which potential users should ask themselves when making software choices, not just of OSS, but also of proprietary products.
