  • Assessing Open Source Risk: An Imperative for M&A Professionals
    Assessing Open Source Risk: An Imperative for M&A Professionals Phil Odence, Vice President & General Manager On-Demand Audits; Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy Recorded: Apr 19 2017 59 mins
    Open source software use is ubiquitous worldwide, increasing the importance that M&A professionals understand the potential security, license compliance, and operational risks open source represents in today’s transactions.

    This webinar will detail findings in a recent report issued by Black Duck’s Center for Open Source Research and Innovation (COSRI) showing that most M&A target organizations are not effective in securing and managing their open source.

    Black Duck On-Demand audits hundreds of commercial code bases each year. The Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) will provide insight and results from over 1000 audits performed in 2016, including:

    - The number, age and severity of vulnerabilities in the open source components
    - The gap between the number of open source components used versus what the target company thought it was using
    - The prevalence of open source components using licenses that could put IP at risk
  • Before You Outsource, Protect Your IP & Mitigate Open Source Risks
    Before You Outsource, Protect Your IP & Mitigate Open Source Risks Jim Markwith, Managing Partner at Symons Markwith LLP Recorded: Apr 18 2017 60 mins
    Today’s rapidly changing technologies, including the proliferation of open source and the accelerating shift to the cloud, are increasing the use of outside experts for both application development and IT solutions. At the same time, IP security is top of mind worldwide. This presentation will look at ways organizations can outsource to meet their development needs and also address open source security and management risks before giving contractors access to their valuable technologies.

  • Comprehensive Toolkit Required for Application Security
    Comprehensive Toolkit Required for Application Security Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Recorded: Apr 13 2017 47 mins
    Applications are the primary target for hackers with a staggering 84% of cybersecurity attacks focused on the application layer. Without effective tools to find and fix application security vulnerabilities, your organization is at risk. However, with lots of available tools – from Dynamic Analysis Security Testing (DAST) and Static Analysis Security Testing (SAST) to Open Source Security Vulnerability Management – selecting the right ones to ensure effective application security is a challenge.

    This webinar will provide an overview of application security risks, the types of solutions available, and where each excels or falls short. You will learn how to assemble a comprehensive application security toolkit to help you stay secure throughout the software application development and management lifecycle.
  • Litigating Open Source – Lessons learned from Hellwig and McHardy
    Litigating Open Source – Lessons learned from Hellwig and McHardy Mark Radcliffe, DLA Piper; Bernd Siebers, DLA Piper, Phil Odence, Black Duck Recorded: Mar 23 2017 62 mins
    The next wave of open source compliance challenges is upon us. Historically, enforcement has been a community based effort with an emphasis on “doing the right thing”. In recent years, however, we have seen the emergence of private enforcement and enforcement driven by entities and individuals for purposes of economic gain. In some cases these actions are to enforce legitimate interests arising from, for instance, dual licensing models. In other cases, copyright “trolls” are pressing an agenda. In this webinar, Mark Radcliffe and Bernd Siebers will review some of the current litigation trends, evaluate how the different elements of the open source community are reacting to these trends and offer insights and strategies for avoiding the cross-hairs. This includes taking a closer look at open source cases litigated in 2016 in Germany, including the following questions:

    - Are we experiencing a shift in jurisprudence?
    - What should users and developers of open source software do to protect themselves?
    - What's the contribution of the open source community?
  • The Case for Continuous Open Source Management
    The Case for Continuous Open Source Management Bob Genshaft, Wolters Kluwer; Phil Odence, Black Duck Software Recorded: Mar 22 2017 45 mins
    Companies are constantly seeking ways to ensure their application code is secure and effectively managed. For example, M&A acquirers conduct one-time code audits on companies they are buying to avoid legal, operational or security pitfalls. Other organizations are proactive, using an ongoing solution to make sure their application code is secure and well managed on a day-to-day basis. Increasingly, many companies are opting to use both approaches.

    Join Bob Genshaft, Director Strategic Programs at Wolters Kluwer, and Black Duck's VP and General Manager On-Demand Audits Phil Odence for a discussion that will address key open source security and management questions:

    · When is it appropriate to conduct an audit?
    · When should your company consider an ongoing solution?
    · What are the benefits of doing both?

  • Risk-Ranking Open Source Vulnerabilities
    Risk-Ranking Open Source Vulnerabilities Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Recorded: Jan 19 2017 43 mins
    Increase security effectiveness and maintain dev agility

    Three certainties in 2017: organizations worldwide will continue to increase their use of open source software; new open source security vulnerabilities will be discovered; exploits of open source vulnerabilities will occur.

    With dev teams under constant pressure to accelerate application delivery and with security resources often scarce, organizations need more effective ways to determine which open source vulnerabilities to fix first and the options available to reduce risk during remediation.

    Join Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger as he discusses strategies and emerging best practices for risk-ranking open source vulnerabilities. He will cover:
    - the most important considerations in prioritizing open source security issues
    - ways to determine the risk associated with a discovered open source vulnerability
    - options for dealing with open source security vulnerabilities beyond simply replacing the component
  • AppSec in 2017 – A Look into the Future
    AppSec in 2017 – A Look into the Future Poonam Yadav, Product Manager, HPE Security Fortify; Mike Pittenger, VP of Security Strategy, Black Duck Recorded: Dec 13 2016 59 mins
    Application security broke new ground in 2016. The shift to DevOps has driven the need for new technologies and different levels of integration across the development ecosystem. The focus is pulling all your organization’s technologies together and bring in products that easily and seamlessly fit into any environment, thereby further automating security while maintaining development agility. These enhancements deliver a more complete view of application-security health, making it possible to assess Static, Dynamic, Interactive and Open Source security in a single view.
    Advancements have been made but as we’ve learned, application security is ever changing. New technology trends – container adoption, IoT, for example – mean new security considerations and AppSec innovation must continue in 2017.

    In this webinar presented by experts from HPE Security Fortify and Black Duck, you'll learn about:

    - The major AppSec advancements in 2016 and their impact on software security health
    - New ways AppSec will evolve in the coming year, including the areas of remediation improvement and cloud integration, DevOps, and Continuous Integration
    - Check list of AppSec best practices for your 2017 toolbox
