Abstract: In this study, a set of methods for the qualitative risk analysis of software development has been developed which has helped to resolve the contradiction that arises in the development of software and consists in neglecting software security vulnerability factors by software companies. A distinctive feature of the proposed method of qualitative risk analysis of software development is the consideration of operational risk factors, especially, the risk of failure to identify software vulnerabilities and evaluation of an arbitrary consistent non-contradictory finite set of "information bits".
