  • Growth of Web Services & APIs and the Risks in M&A
    Growth of Web Services & APIs and the Risks in M&A
    Tony Decicco, GTC Law Group & Phil Odence, Synopsys Recorded: May 22 2019 61 mins
    Just like most software assets contain open source, modern software applications commonly link to external web services via APIs. By using web services, developers may be inadvertently signing their companies up to terms of service or using a web service without a suitable agreement. And using these services can expose a company to security, data privacy, and operational risks that could disrupt or severely affect the business. As part of the tech M&A due diligence process, you should be aware of these web services-related risks so that you can make informed decisions about deal valuation and remediation.

    Join Tony Decicco, shareholder at GTC Law Group and Affiliates, and Phil Odence, GM of Black Duck Audits, as they discuss the types of risk associated with web services and how they can affect an M&A transaction. They’ll cover:

    • Typical terms of service and common pitfalls
    • The legal compliance, data privacy, security, and business risks that come with web services
    • Real-world examples of these risks
    • How a buyer can get a better understanding of these risks in a target’s codebase or a seller can prepare for diligence to avoid risks in this area

  • Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers
    Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers
    Phil Odence, General Manager, Black Duck On-Demand Recorded: May 2 2019 51 mins
    In over 1,000 codebases audited in 2018, Black Duck Audits found that nearly every one contained open source components. Not only that, but a significant percentage of “proprietary code” overall was open source. Virtually every company building software now depends on open source, and with great reason. However, left unmanaged, open source can lead to license compliance issues plus security and code quality risks. Whether you’re on the buy side or sell side, these risks could negatively affect valuation in an M&A transaction.

    Many acquirers have come to understand all this in concept; the Black Duck audit services group has the data. Join us for this webinar as we answer questions about the code of tech companies being acquired today. We’ll cover:

    • Open source license and security risks by the numbers
    • Why audits have become the norm in M&A tech due diligence
    • How you can get a complete picture of open source risks

    Brandon Dobrec, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions and Paul Roberts, Security Ledger Recorded: Mar 20 2019 61 mins
    Vendors, suppliers, and independent subsidiaries are gaining more and more access to your network and sensitive data because today’s business models include outsourcing of non-mission critical programs and tasks, which brings a whole new world of risk to your organization. These not so new cyber risks make traditional perimeter defense no longer enough. Companies need continuous visibility and monitoring of their external partners threat landscapes. Use a cyber situational awareness platform that provides you with a map of your cyber risks you can identify vulnerabilities before the adversary does.

    In this webinar, LookingGlass Product Manager, Brandon Dobrec and Security Ledger Editor-in-Chief, Paul Roberts will discuss what you need to assess vendors in the modern cyber environment, providing you with the right map to assess your external risk.

    This webinar will answer:

    - Why point-in-time scorecards are a necessary component of third party risk management, but are woefully inadequate for proactively defending against future attacks

    - How a cyber situational platform delivers an outside-in view of your network, allowing you to see gaps in your network

    - Tools, capabilities, features, and functionalities are needed to assess vendor risk – continuous monitoring, alerting, reporting, and dynamic collection & scoring, among others

    - Common attack vectors, why these vectors remain open, and what attack vectors are emerging regularly

  • Managing the Business Risks of Open Source
    Managing the Business Risks of Open Source
    Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security, 451 Research & Phil Odence, GM, Black Duck by Synopsys Recorded: Jan 24 2019 61 mins
    It’s no secret that “software is eating the world,” as Marc Andreessen once described—and it’s taking entire development communities to support it. Recently, open source has become a primary contributor to software found in the enterprise. According to a 2018 report from the Synopsys Center for Open Source Research & Innovation, the average percentage of open source in codebases examined in Black Duck audits has increased to 57% from only 36% from the previous year. But open source isn’t risk-free—and the implications can have a direct impact on the business.

    Join Scott Crawford, research director for information security with 451 Research, and Phil Odence, general manager of Black Duck On-Demand with Synopsys, to take a closer look at open source risks and the ways that businesses can better evaluate and mitigate them. They’ll cover the following points and more:

    • One of the highest-profile breaches of 2017 was the result of a widely exposed vulnerability in a popular open source application component, exposing millions of personal financial records—and costing business leaders their jobs.
    • In just the last few weeks, the implicit trust on which the open source ecosystem is based has been exploited to steal tangible assets.
    • What’s the real cost of a data breach? In at least one highly visible case, a breach reduced the dollar value of an acquisition by hundreds of millions. As business dependence on open source grows, so too does business exposure.
    • And of course, compliance with open source licenses remains a concern.

    Getting a handle on taming these threats to the business requires an approach that fits with the central role open source plays in the fast-moving world of continuous innovation.

    Beyond Open Source Compliance: Security in M&A Due Diligence
    Nabil Hannan, Managing Principal, Synopsys Recorded: Dec 12 2018 30 mins
    The headline of Wall Street Journal article from March read “Due Diligence on Cybersecurity Becomes Bigger Factor in M&A.” In April, Gartner reported, “Cybersecurity is Critical to the M&A Due Diligence Process.” Companies that invest in open source license compliance as part of diligence are starting to dive more deeply into security issues.
     
    A first step in assigning the security of software assets is looking at known vulnerabilities in open source components. But, now as part of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, Black Duck can bring much broader capabilities to bear to analyze the overall security of code assets, including proprietary code.
     
    This webinar will discuss application security issues at a high level and the security services that you can include with a due diligence audit.

    The 21st Century Lawyer: Adapting to a Tech-Driven Legal World
    Wendy Axelrod, Christine Kennedy & Sarah Sutherland Jun 18 2019 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The core job of attorneys is changing dramatically due to technology. The evolution of legal tech began with products that provided greater efficiencies in the management of routine tasks such as billing, research, and client communication. Today, it involves technologies such as advanced software and coding that have significantly enhanced legal capabilities. These include AI, which allows lawyers to quickly review large volumes of documents and digital material in multiple languages and dialects, resulting in enormous time and cost-savings.

    Today, advanced technologies are more embedded in the practice of law. As a result, law firms and corporate legal departments are faced with a need to change: embrace technology or risk losing a competitive advantage. Lawyers must be tech savvy unlike ever before.

    How can lawyers adapt to this new environment?
    What is the proper balance between manual processes and those that are automated by technology?
    What can law firms do culturally to ensure that lawyers can leverage technology to work more efficiently?

    This webinar will highlight how forces such as AI, predictive coding, and data analytics are reshaping the practice of law. It will focus on ways in which attorneys can be empowered to use technology to achieve greater outcomes. It will also highlight how and why it is critical for law firms to bring in the right people to ensure that advanced technologies can be optimally deployed to deliver legal services.

    Legal Innovation: AI and a New Normal for the Business and Practice of Law
    Brian Kuhn, Founder and Global Leader – IBM Watson Legal Jun 18 2019 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Disruption from artificial intelligence is the “new normal” within the legal industry. Law firms and corporate law departments are increasingly using AI to augment front and back-office operations. Although adoption of automating simple, repetitive processes with AI is becoming more common, many law firms and companies do not understand how AI aligns with their business model or what to expect from this technology. They face challenges defining a business-centric digital strategy for AI initiatives. With new market entrants disrupting both law firm incumbents and legacy technology providers, the need for leaders to establish a clear digital strategy has never been more important.

    This session will provide insight into best-practices for defining the elements of a successful digital strategy for AI. How do lawyers prioritize a starting place? What critical factors should you consider in building or buying AI? How can you scale AI to the benefit of your organization, clients, and your customers while planning for future change? This session will consider these and other issues, beginning with an a description of AI and details on how it has already transformed the market for legal services.

    Data analytics seems like a tool for large firms with data scientists and geeks – but data analytics are really just reports of what has happened. They are like maps for litigation.

    Data analytics doesn’t have to be intimidating, and in fact, it can level the playing field in litigation, helping small firms to harness the kinds of resources that large firms do.

    In this session, Fastcase CEO Ed Walters (and editor of the new book, "Data-Driven Law") will give an introduction to data analytics – what they are, and how to use analytics to make better strategic decisions and to win more cases.

    Developers are your greatest AppSec Resource – Here’s How to Activate Them
    Amy DeMartine, Forrester Principal Analyst and Utsav Sanghani, Senior Product Manager, Synopsys Jun 25 2019 6:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Application vulnerabilities are a prime target for attackers, and the critical task of identifying and remediating these flaws before they’re exploited can be daunting, especially for organizations adopting DevOps and CI/CD practices. Security teams don’t have the time or resources to find and fix every vulnerability, and developers prefer to do what they do best – build and deploy features quickly. Fortunately, developers can be good at their jobs and be your most effective application security resources if you enable them with the low-friction tools and training at the precise time they need them.

    Join guest speaker Amy DeMartine, principal analyst at Forrester Research, and Utsav Sanghani, senior product manager at Synopsys, as they explore tools and techniques that can transform your developers into AppSec rock stars:
    - Rapid and continuous in-IDE security testing can help your developers find and fix issues before they ever get committed to your codebase.
    - Delivering short, contextualized AppSec training modules to developers in real time when they introduce vulnerabilities.
    - Most modern applications contain more open source code than proprietary code. Help your developers identify and avoid risky OSS components.
