The Open Source Office (OSO), within Shared Technology, is a dedicated group of technologists focused on leading and advising Capital One’s development community in managing risks related to their open source activities.

+ Obtain and analyze test data from multiple sources, following documented test plans, testing protocols and leveraging job aids as needed

+ Submit test results in the Risk Management system of record

+ Systematically retain documents that substantiate test results in accordance with procedures

+ Track the development community’s remediation commitments and include updates in reporting

+ Pro-actively establish and maintain strong relationships with both team members, development community and internal audit
