Businesses and governments worldwide increasingly rely on open source software to reduce development costs, get to market faster, and innovate. Despite its ubiquity, there are many management and security challenges that have accompanied the explosive growth in open source usage. Most organizations don’t know how much open source is in their applications or where it is in their code base. There is considerable confusion and misinformation about the what strategies and tools are needed to identify known open source vulnerabilities in the application code and assure the secure use of open source.
Please join Black Duck's VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger as he unpacks the common myths and misperceptions surrounding open source use and learn best practices to secure and manage your open source, reduce risk from security vulnerabilities and increase efficiency within your SDLC.
Open source has been adopted by organizations across all industries, including software, systems, and cloud services. How much open source is used, along with the license, security, and operational risks posed by unmanaged use of open source, is a question M&A professionals need to consider in every transaction.
This webinar will provide insight from real world data abstracted from Black Duck M&A audits. The data covers hundreds of systems and commercial applications, the code assets of recent acquisition targets, and will illuminate why acquirers should understand exactly what is in the code base before closing the deal. Data will include:
- The composition of open source v. proprietary code in the average code base
- The gap between the number of open source components used vs. what was known by the target
- The prevalence of components using licenses that could put IP at risk
- Number and age of security vulnerabilities in the open source components
- An understanding of which components have underactive support communities
This webinar will examine the implications of recent open source compliance and litigation. It will touch on a series of Linux-related cases as well as stepped up compliance activity in Germany and current patent suits against Apache projects. The new litigation will be discussed in the context of prior similar cases such as the Versata-Ameriprise case. Additionally, the webinar will overview compliance best practices and how to reduce the risk of open source compliance and litigation.Read more >

Recent Black Duck On-Demand security audits of 200 commercial applications confirm the importance of open source in application development, but also highlight the persistent challenges organizations face in effectively securing and managing their open source. Black Duck’s Open Source Security Audit Report reveals that on average the applications contained more than twice as much open source as the organizations thought, and that 67% of the audited applications contained known open source vulnerabilities.
In this 30-minute webinar, Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger will review the audit findings and discuss strategies companies can use to minimize security risk while maximizing the economic and productivity value open source provides.
Open source-savvy lawyers have long advised their clients on managing risk by attending to compliance processes. But, insight into the open source and other third party code used in a code base is also critical to managing security risks.

DLA Piper security expert Peter McLaughlin will discuss the legal underpinnings of cyber security. David A. Wheeler, security research expert for the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) will explore the Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative to ensure the security of 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.

Global energy demand is rising, while water is becoming a scarcer commodity in many parts of the world due to over-exploitation, droughts, heat waves, and other factors. Meeting the growing demand will place
increasing stress on limited fresh water resources. The power generation industry is typically the largest industrial user of fresh water in a country. Consequently, the vulnerability of the power generation
industry to constraints in water availability can be expected to increase. Hence non-fresh water sources will become increasingly important. This report examines the availability and use of potential non-fresh water sources in China, India, South Africa and the USA. These are the four top thermal coal consuming countries in the world. The alternative sources are municipal waste water, brackish and sea water, mine
water, produced water from oil and gas wells (including coalbed methane wells), and water extracted from deep saline aquifers during CO2 storage. In certain cases, and with suitable design of the on-site
water treatment plant, a coal-fired power plant could become a supplier of both energy and fresh water, instead of a water consumer.
