Validating and improving test case effectiveness
One aspect that should be emphasized is that security measurements are about both the specific technical issues (e.g., how prevalent a certain vulnerability is) and how these issues affect the economics of software.
Most technical people will at least understand the basic issues, or they may have a deeper understanding of the vulnerabilities.
The group fully understands that not everyone will agree upon all of these decisions.
However, OWASP is able to take the high ground and change culture over time through awareness and education based on consensus and experience.
It was also a challenge to change the focus of web application testing from penetration testing to testing integrated in the software development life cycle.
However, the group is very satisfied with the results of the project.
The framework described in this document encourages people to measure security throughout the entire development process.The guide gives a broad view of the elements required to make a comprehensive web application security program.This guide can be used as a reference guide and as a methodology to help determine the gap between existing practices and industry best practices.This article is part of the new OWASP Testing Guide v4.

Many industry experts and security professionals, some of whom are responsible for software security at some of the largest companies in the world, are validating the testing framework.
