    You’ve Got Your Open Source Audit Report - Now What?
    Tony Decicco & Leon Schwartz, GTC Law, Phil Odence, Synopsys Recorded: Nov 14 2019 61 mins
    Companies’ use of open source software has surpassed the occasional and solidified itself as mainstream. Effectively identifying and managing the compliance and security risks associated with open source software can be a difficult task. Whether you’re acquiring another company, preparing for acquisition or simply wanting to manage the use of open source, the universal first step is to figure out the composition of the code, often via an audit. But what do you do once you have the audit report?

    Join us for this live webinar to learn best practices before and after an open source audit. We’ll cover how to:

    •Select and prepare the code base
    •Get the most out of an audit
    •Implement a third-party software policy
    •And more

  • Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys & Daniel Sturtevant, CEO and Co-founder, Silverthread Recorded: Oct 24 2019 47 mins
    (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

    In an acquisition where a software asset is a core part of the deal valuation, it’s important to understand the overall quality of the software before doing the deal. Buggy software is problematic and needs to be cleaned up, so assessing code quality is important. But also, with poorly designed software, every fix is costly, laborious, and risky. The cost of fixes can significantly affect the long-term technical and economic viability of the application, and maintaining the software can seriously degrade ROI. That’s why understanding a software system’s design and architectural health and the likely “cost of ownership” is key.

    Join us for this live webinar to learn how to paint a complete picture of the technical quality of software to avoid buyer’s remorse post-close. We’ll cover:

    •The dimensions of technical due diligence
    •The difference between design quality and code quality
    •How software architecture can have a long-term impact
    •What to look for in software design and code quality audits

  • The CRISPR IP Saga - the latest chapter and looking to the next
    The CRISPR IP Saga - the latest chapter and looking to the next
    Dr Claire Irvine (Partner, HGF), Douglas Drysdale (Partner, HGF) Recorded: Oct 10 2019 67 mins
    CRISPR gene-editing continues to hit the headlines regularly as a ground-breaking technology with many millions now flowing into companies seeking to exploit the technology in both the therapeutic and agricultural fields. Unfortunately, the IP landscape continues to lack clarity with possibility of divergence between Europe and the US.

    This webinar will provide an update on the CRISPR IP saga and seek to shine light on the interplay between the latest chapter in the US, starting with new interference proceedings instigated by the USPTO, and opposition and appeal proceedings affecting key European patents at the European Patent Office. With oral proceeding now scheduled for early February 2020 for the opposition to the basic European patent of the University of California et al. and availability of a non-binding preliminary opinion on the arguments from the opposition board, it is an apt time for review of the main focus of the battle - coverage of CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing in eukaryotic cells. The webinar will also discuss the considerations for those needing to think about freedom-to–operate in the absence of resolution of a standard for CRISPR gene-editing for therapy and the growing number of
    claims outside the main battle lines.

    This webinar is aimed at those wishing to hear about the latest developments in the CRISPR IP landscape whether in the commercial, academic, legal or patent world. With the CRISPR IP saga not evidently close to the final chapter, it will also provide an opportunity to raise questions which may arise from the on–going lack of clarity.
  • Fuzzing Infotainment Systems and Telematics Units With Agent Instrumentation
    Fuzzing Infotainment Systems and Telematics Units With Agent Instrumentation
    Dennis Kengo Oka, Senior Solutions Architect, Synopsys & Rikke Kuipers, Product Manager, Synopsys Recorded: Oct 8 2019 58 mins
    In the past few years, cybersecurity has become more intertwined into each step of the automotive development process. In particular, fuzz testing has proven to be a powerful approach to detect unknown vulnerabilities in automotive systems. However, with limited instrumentation, especially on systems such as in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system and telematics units, there are several types of issues that go undetected, such as memory leaks and cases where the application crashes but restarts quickly. Since these systems are typically based on operating systems providing more functionality such as Linux and Android, it is possible to use appropriate tools to collect additional information from the system under test (SUT) to determine whether there were any exceptions detected during the fuzz testing. Furthermore, it would be possible to gather more details about the detected exceptions on the SUT which helps developers to better understand and identify the root cause of the issues and fix the problems more efficiently. To this end, we introduce the Agent Instrumentation Framework and explain how it can be used to improve fuzz testing of IVIs and telematics units. We show how additional information can be collected from the target system and used to identify whether there are exceptions on the SUT and additionally help developers identify the underlying cause of any issues detected. Finally, to showcase the effectiveness of the agent instrumentation framework we built a test bench based on this approach and performed fuzz testing on multiple SUTs. Based on our findings we highlight several examples of issues that would have not been detected unless we used agent instrumentation.
  • Financial Services Study Shows Why Investing in AppSec Matters
    Financial Services Study Shows Why Investing in AppSec Matters
    Drew Kilbourne and Larry Ponemon Recorded: Oct 8 2019 34 mins
    If you’re a provider of financial services, then client trust, privacy, and risk management are critical to your success. Therefore, you must protect your organization’s sensitive data from cyber attacks and data breaches. A recent survey of current software security practices in the financial services industry explores the industry’s software security posture and its ability to address security-related issues.

    In this webinar with Drew Kilbourne, managing director, Synopsys and Larry Ponemon, chairman, Ponemon Institute, will review findings from the report and discuss what they mean for the industry at large. Here’s a preview of some key findings:

    - 56% of organizations had experienced an attack resulting in system failure and downtime.
    - 74% were concerned about security vulnerabilities introduced by third-party suppliers, but less than 43% said they require third parties to adhere to cyber security requirements.
    - Only 34% of financial applications are tested for vulnerabilities, and only 25% of respondents were confident in their ability to detect vulnerabilities before going to market.
  • A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    Irad Deutsch, CTO, Belong.Life and Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys Recorded: Sep 26 2019 57 mins
    On the buy side of a tech deal and want to better understand sellers? Selling a company and want to benefit from the experience of someone who’s been there (and been there and been there)?

    Building a successful software company takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. When a liquidity opportunity presents itself, sellers want to make sure they get the best deal they can, and quickly. During due diligence, the potential acquirer will delve into all facets of the technology. The more prepared the sell side is, the fewer issues will arise, and the smoother the transaction will be.

    What do buyers need, and what can prepared sellers do to streamline the process? Security, quality, and the intellectual property rights of the software are critical. Buyers, sellers, and their legal advisors need to be comfortable that no big technical issues will crop up post-close. Plus, they want to know that they have absolute and uncontested rights to the software assets—in particular, that there are no issues with open source licenses.

    Irad Deutsch, CTO of Belong.Life, has successfully made it through the process with two companies and has it down to a science for his third. Join Irad and Synopsys’ Phil Odence as they discuss the seller’s perspective, lessons learned on the seller’s side, and how to prepare for the M&A tech due diligence process.

    CAR-T and other immunotherapies
    Iain Armstrong (Partner, HGF), Peter Scott (Editor-in-Chief, LSIPR) Recorded: Sep 3 2019 62 mins
    Immunotherapies, such as CAR-T cells, are a hugely promising therapeutic area, both in terms of clinical benefits and potential market size.
    While the treatments are complicated and expensive, they have proven remarkably effective in achieving positive outcomes in forms of cancer that are otherwise difficult to treat. As a result, their clinical use has recently been approved in both the US and Europe.
    The webinar will consider how commercial and technological developments have also impacted patent filings in this area. As the field becomes increasingly crowded, the likelihood of obtaining very broad patent protection decreases. However, the number of patent filings continues to grow dramatically.
