  • The State of Open Source Security The State of Open Source Security Bob Canaway, CMO, Black Duck Recorded: Nov 30 2016 56 mins
    Open Source software is the foundation for application development today and its use is growing rapidly worldwide because of the development cost reductions and innovation it enables. Black Duck discovers open source in every application it analyzes and finds finds that 35% of the average commercial software application is open source. Home-grown applications typically contain 50% or more open source.

    The dramatic growth in open source use has been accompanied by an array of security and management challenges related to a lack of visibility into and control of the open source in use. Leading organizations are aggressively pursuing ways to continue to increase their use of open source and do so without compromising effective security or management.

    This webinar will present findings from Black Duck's Center for Open Source Research examining open source use, risks, and benefits. Black Duck CMO Bob Canaway will discuss the latest open source threats, usage patterns, governance, and the changing security and management needs as open source expands across the cloud, the Internet of Things, and the digital landscape.
