The standard, combined with a standardised test of the skills covered in the standard, will enable employers to assure themselves that their developers have the necessary knowledge and skills to recognise errors in their own and other people's code, and write code that avoids most common errors.
It also allows large companies that outsource software development to measure how prepared their outsourcers are to write secure software.
