  • Lessons from Equifax: Open Source Security & Data Privacy Compliance
    Lessons from Equifax: Open Source Security & Data Privacy Compliance Bob Canaway, CMO, Black Duck; Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Recorded: Nov 16 2017 46 mins
    The Equifax breach provided a unique look into “how” many breaches occur. In Equifax’s case, hackers exploited an unpatched Apache Struts component, resulting in the exposure of over 140 million consumer records. The exploit of this vulnerability highlights the need for visibility to open source in custom applications and just how ineffective traditional security solutions are when it comes to open source vulnerabilities.
     
    Further, while class action lawsuits have already begun, Equifax faces other regulatory challenges as well. The US Federal Trade Commission started investigations into the company’s security policies and controls that will likely result in financial penalties. Since the exposed data included non-US citizens, foreign data protection and data privacy regulations also come into play.
     
    Join Mike Pittenger and Bob Canaway as they discuss how organizations can more effectively manage open source, the strengths and weaknesses of testing methodologies in identifying vulnerable open source components, and how data privacy standards such as PCI, Section 5 of the FTC Act, and GDPR necessitate a change in how organizations address vulnerabilities in their code.

    DevOps teams are building applications faster than ever before, and utilizing large amounts of open-source software to increase agility. However, that introduces the possibility of open-source security risk. The landscape of attacks has changed in recent years, with cyber-attacks increasingly happening on the application layer. This means DevOps teams need to be involved in the security process.

    This task is made more daunting as modern applications are a mix of custom code and open source in their applications. How do you protect your DevOps? Register for this webinar where security experts from Micro Focus Fortify and Black Duck discuss:
    - Understanding the mindset of an attacker
    - Ways to automate the process of risk identification
    - The ability to gate builds when finding risk elements

  • Blockchain & Open Source: Hype or Potential Game Changer?
    Blockchain & Open Source: Hype or Potential Game Changer? Karen Copenhaver, Partner, Choate Hall & Stewart/Counsel, Linux Foundation; Mark Radcliffe Partner, DLA Piper/Counsel OSI Recorded: Sep 28 2017 58 mins
    There’s a lot of buzz about blockchain technology, with the revolutionary possibilities of blockchain being compared to the early days of the Internet, promising to transform the ways in which people and businesses cooperate. The second generation of open source blockchain projects such as Openchain, Ethereum and the Hyperledger Project illustrate how open source platforms are evolving in different directions to support distributed transactions and contracts of all types.

    With an eye to keeping the hype factor to a minimum, this webinar will explore the promise and potential of blockchain and look at some of the many exciting open source blockchain projects being implemented today.
  • Black Duck MasterClass - Open Source Security for Containers and Applications
    Black Duck MasterClass - Open Source Security for Containers and Applications Tim Mackey, Senior Technology Evangelist, Black Duck Recorded: Sep 19 2017 56 mins
    Managing container infrastructure in a production environment is challenged by problems of scale. One of the biggest problems is trust—specifically trust of the application. To put it another way, can you trust that all containers in your Kubernetes or OpenShift cluster are performing the tasks you expect of them? We know that containerization has increased the pace of deployment, but has trust kept pace? If a container becomes compromised in some fashion, how many other containers are at risk and how far has trust been broken?

    Tim Mackey explores the nature of data center threats, why threat models fail, how malicious attackers design their attacks, when the threat risk increases prior to attack and why information flow matters, and how traditional defenses are inadequate for container workloads. Tim then shares measures you can take to proactively identify risks, including OpenShift integrated tooling to identify container images with increased risk.

  • Healthcare and Open Source – Balancing Innovation Against Risk
    Healthcare and Open Source – Balancing Innovation Against Risk Jim DeGraw, Partner, Ropes & Gray; Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Recorded: Aug 8 2017 59 mins
    More and more innovation in the healthcare industry is powered by open source software, whether it’s for a new pacemaker or the latest Electronic Medical Records (EMR) platform.

    A recent study of more than 1,000 commercial software applications found that open source components comprised 46% of the code in commercial applications for healthcare-related industries. But with innovation comes risk. The same research uncovered high-risk open source security vulnerabilities in 47% of the healthcare applications studied.

    A focused approach to managing open source risk is essential as HIPAA and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) put new pressures on healthcare providers and technology companies to protect patient data privacy and security.

    If you're concerned with healthcare application security, learn why open source management is essential for your overall security strategy.

    Legislators in Europe continue to expand the scope of the laws governing information security and personal data protection. As a result, organizations serving consumers and businesses in the region need to understand the implications these laws will have on their use of open source to build software applications.

    During this educational webinar led by Dan Hedley, Partner, IT and Commercial from Irwin Mitchell, we’ll provide guidance on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and why a comprehensive approach to open source security management is essential for GDPR observance. In addition, we’ll review open source management best practices in context of other industry-specific developments like the Network and Information Services Directive and the Electronic Identification Regulation.
