The first quarter of 2016 was a big one for new open source security vulnerabilities. The Glibc vulnerability was by far the biggest. It impacts nearly 900K of the 1 million different open source projects. In this webinar, we’ll dive into Glibc and the Q1 data to help you:
- Understand latest trends in open source security threats and what it means to your organization in 2016
- Simple steps to quickly find and protect yourself from newly reported threats
- Prepare your organization to respond to new vulnerabilities in open source projects
The recent high-profile “Panama Papers” exploit, which resulted in the theft of 2.6 terabytes of data from the Mossack Fonseca law firm, highlighted the firm’s failure to effectively secure and manage its open source software.
Although the exploited component has yet to be pinpointed, the breach investigation has revealed that Mossack Fonseca was delinquent in patching known open source vulnerabilities in both Drupal and Wordpress. This lapse exposed sensitive client information.
Open source software is an essential element in application development today and this breach raises the question: What are the best practices for securing and managing open source to avoid exploitation? This webcast will detail the processes organization can implement to secure and manage their open source to reduce risk from security vulnerabilities.
Please join us to learn the results of the 2016 Future of Open Source Survey.
Today, open source drives technology and development forward. Its adoption worldwide is visible in companies ranging in size from a single employee to companies like Microsoft and Apple. All of these organizations rely on open source to innovate, reduce development costs, and speed time to market. In this evolving market, important questions remain about open source management, security, policies and procedures, and governance.
The Future of Open Source Survey includes input from new players, established leaders, and influencers across vertical markets and communities. This range of respondents drives broad industry awareness and discussions of key issues.
Please join these industry influencers as they review the top level results from the survey, and bring your questions.
