  • 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.

    How to create a 5-year M&A plan for dealing with patent cliffs
    Jurgen Vollrath, President at Exponential Technology Counsel Recorded: Jul 25 2018 40 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.

    Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers
    Phil Odence, General Manager, Black Duck On-Demand Apr 11 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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
