ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Securing Third Party Code – A Digital Imperative for a Connected World
It is clear that digitization and interconnectedness are the single biggest factors that will drive societal progress and economic growth for the foreseeable future. In order for this to happen, however, we must be able to trust the security of the software that runs the world and our lives. And that requires everyone involved — including commercial software providers, enterprises, independent third-party assessors and security researchers — to be transparent and collaborative.
However, any organization that adds to its software supply chain without the requisite vetting or application security testing is introducing new and potentially potent risks. Software is nearly always rife with flaws, some more severe than others:
- 85 percent of applications have at least one vulnerability.
- 55 percent of flaws remain 3 months after discovery.
- Organizations that scan frequently fix their flaws 11.5 times faster than the typical organization.
Care to learn more about how third party code can be made more secure? Then join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering insights on how today’s organizations can improve third party code integrity and better protect today’s digital enterprises.
Discussion topics will include:
- The biggest pitfalls in third party code usage today,
- Bridging the gap between security and development teams, and
- How organizations can better avoid security issues with their software supply chain in the future.
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Ryan Davis, Chief Information Security Officer at Veracode.
