1. I do not like the abbreviation GASS (hot air?), or worse if we drop
the 'Global"

2. On Page 3, do we need to be more specific - is it "IS threats" we
are talking about?  So p3 heading might be "IS Threats and Risks" and
p4 might be "Application Threats and Risks". Do we need to define

3. On p5, is it worth asking split application/infrastructure/other to
compare with the threat/risk values?

4. On p7, "AntiSammy" should not have double "m", ZAP needs to be
moved down a few lines in the alphabetical ordering

5. Do pp10-11 sufficiently cover all the measures "we" recommend
through the SDLC e.g. security requirements, training, threat
modelling, guidelines, tested modules/frameworks, etc, etc? Actually I
agree with Tobias's comment, I am not sure the existing questions add
much value, and we're not attempting to do a SAMM/BSIMM survey either.

6. On p14 I think "OWASP SAMM" would more correctly be written "Open SAMM"
