  • 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
    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.

  • 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 May 2 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 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

  • 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 May 22 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 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
