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.

Nabil Hannan, Managing Principal, SynopsysRecorded: Dec 12 201830 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.

Modern applications are constructed using open source components. Most organizations understand they’re using open source. What they likely underestimate is its prevalence in their homegrown applications and the potential security and license compliance risks they assume if they’re not continuously monitoring those libraries. When companies merge or are acquired, that unknown risk is transferred, potentially to organizations with greater regulatory exposure. Join Daniel Kennedy, Research Director, Information Security, and Phil Odence, GM, Black Duck On-Demand, for a discussion of these risks and how to address them.

It’s 2018 – why are we still manually blocking firewall ports, manually ingesting threat feeds, and manually implementing blocks from well-known, trusted sources? Automation and integration allows security professionals to keep up with the pace of today’s threat landscape. The two go hand in hand but are they right for every organization?
This webcast explores the pros and cons of automation and integration, focusing on what an organization needs to consider before implementing such an approach. Most important, the webcast and associated white paper will help answer these key questions:
What would it take to manually do what automation does?
How can I protect my assets?
How do I get actionable threat intelligence?

Personalised healthcare (sometimes referred to as precision medicine) is an evolving field in medicine where a therapeutic treatment is tailored to an individual with a particular disease. The patenting of personalised healthcare inventions has proved problematic in a number of jurisdictions, most notably the USA. However, various aspects of these inventions are patentable in Europe.
This webinar will set the scene as to what personalised healthcare is and will run through the history of second medical use patenting in Europe. Discussing key cases such as G5/83, T1020/03 and G2/08.
It will then focus on how second medical use patenting can be applied to personalised healthcare inventions and will give examples of claim language that is finding favour at the EPO.

Laura Schoppe, President and Owner of FuentekRecorded: Aug 14 201846 mins
Patent licensing negotiations have an extremely high fail rate- this can be down to unfavourable licensing terms or weak patent portfolios. One of the ways universities and industry are trying to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation is by working together much earlier.
From a university standpoint, their research can be tailored to specific industry needs, as well as having research costs covered. Through the eyes of industry, they can get their hands on the latest research developments, and attract the brightest and talented individuals to their businesses.
Laura Schoppe, President and Founder of Fuentek, who has years experience helping TTO's improve their chances of commercalisation will be joining us to discuss:
- How to start sourcing strategic sponsorship deals
- Where to begin with searching and conversations for partnerships
- The benefits of this chosen pathway. i.e Minimising risk
Please note: All viewers will have their data shared with our guest speaker.
Jurgen Vollrath, President at Exponential Technology CounselRecorded: Jul 25 201840 mins
A ‘Patent cliff’ describes a severe drop in revenue once the patent for a company’s leading product expires. The sharp revenue decline is a result of competitors being able to start developing and selling the product, often at a much lower price.
As US biopharmaceutical company Celgene struggles to get regulatory approval from the FDA, the company is facing major market, shares and revenue losses, and is facing a phenomenal patent cliff. Furthermore, research from EvaluatePharma reports that an estimated $250 billion in projected sales is at risk between 2018-2024 as many drugs lose exclusivity.
When it comes to acquisitions, the effects of a dwindling patent term can severely impact the value of your company. So how do you create 5-year plan to prepare for an inevitable patent cliff? We are very excited to welcome back Jurgen Vollrath, President of Exponential Technology Counsel, and customer of PatSnap. ET Counsel, advise clients on IP strategy & business alignment to ensure the most successful M&A and exit outcomes.
In this webinar, Jurgen will be discussing:
- Risk vs. reality when it comes to patent cliffs
- How to create a 5-year M&A plan for your organisation
- How to find potential acquisition targets
- Predicting the potential impact a patent cliff could have on your business.

The use of open source has surpassed the occasional and solidified itself as the standard. In fact, the Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis found that 96% of the applications we scanned last year contained open source components.
It’s increasingly difficult to properly manage open source in an organization to ensure compliance with the over 2,000 different licenses in use today and defend against new vulnerabilities, which surface frequently.
Join this webinar with top open source legal experts Mark Radcliffe (partner at DLA Piper and general counsel for the Open Source Initiative) and Tony Decicco (shareholder, GTC Law Group & Affiliates) as they discuss best practices for managing open source in an organization and throughout an M&A transaction:
- How do you conduct an open source / third-party software audit?
- How do you get the most out of your Black Duck code scan?
i.e. Handling license compliance issues and managing security vulnerabilities
- What are key aspects of an effective open source / third-party software policy for both inbound use and outbound contributions?
- What are key success factors for effectively releasing code as open source?
Michael Suby, VP of Research at Frost & Sullivan, and James Carnall, VP of Customer Support Group at LookingGlassRecorded: Jul 17 201863 mins
In the highly dynamic online landscape of misinformation, fake news, gossip, and the trading of absconded data, organizations must expand their cybersecurity arsenals in protecting their brands, personnel, facilities, and sensitive information. They must take into account what exists outside the perimeter in the greater cyber ecosystem: the surface, dark, and deep web. Locating and assessing these threats, however, is a challenge for even experienced threat hunters. The tools and techniques are non-standard. You should ask yourself, “Is my security team ready to tackle what lies beyond the perimeter?” If not, let us shed light on this topic. Register for LookingGlass' "Threats Beyond the Perimeter" webinar on Tuesday, July 17 @ 2 pm ET to hear Michael Suby, VP of Research at Frost & Sullivan and James Carnall, VP of Customer Support Group at LookingGlass discuss how these scenarios may affect your brand, employees, and facilities.

Brandon Dobrec, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions and Paul Roberts, Security LedgerMar 20 20196:00 pmUTC60 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
There is risk in any M&A transaction but having the right tech due diligence approach can help mitigate those risks. If software is a large part of the deal valuation, you need to understand any potential legal and security risks in the target’s codebase that could affect the value of the IP, and the remediation required to address those risks.
Join Phil Odence, General Manager of Black Duck On-Demand with Synopsys, to take a closer look at how you can identify and reduce risks in M&A tech due diligence. He’ll cover the following points and more:
• Application Risks: What’s in the code
• Taking a comprehensive approach to security audits
• Choosing the right partner for audits

In over 1000 code bases audited in 2018, Black Duck found that nearly every one contained open source components. Not only that, but a significant % of “proprietary code” overall was open source. Virtually every company building software is now depending 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 valuation in an M&A transaction.
Many acquirers have come to understand all this in concept; Black Duck 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
