Open Source Components: How to Increase Speed and Reduce the Risk
Open source and third-party components help developers build and deploy applications faster. But with increased speed comes greater risk that could lead to fraud. To reduce these risks, development and security teams need strategies to tackle the challenge of securing their applications from vulnerabilities in third-party and open source components. Do you know which open source components your developers have used? Does your organization have a formal approach to component inventory and developer education?
If you’re looking for answers to these questions, then join Nick Holland for an exclusive roundtable discussion where attendees will tackle such topics as:
- How do open source and third-party components create greater fraud risk?
- How can organizations reduce risk through strategies including component inventories and developer education?
- How can software composition analysis technologies help you keep track of component use and be ready when the next vulnerability hits the news?
