The phrase 'Open Bank’ means nothing to consumers and small businesses - and probably never will.
But the whole Open Bank endeavour will enable innovative new services, delivered by more competitive suppliers - meaning that customers will have access to services that are actually relevant to them and which work in today's (and tomorrow's) world.
We'll discuss how to encourage consumers and small businesses to explore and embrace the new Open Bank world.

Enterprises can gain business benefit from emerging digital computing and communications technologies. Their business departments want to experiment with new solutions and to develop and deploy them rapidly. They often want to use multiple technologies in combination. But they are faced with a mass of product-specific and technology-specific standards that make it hard to use, and harder still to integrate, different technologies.
Open Platform 3.0 is a standard for platforms. It applies to platforms that give users access to digital technologies. It is being developed by The Open Group. The presentation will explain why Open Platform 3.0 is needed, how it is developing, and how it will impact cloud networks.

There’s a lot of buzz about blockchain technology, with the revolutionary possibilities of blockchain being compared to the early days of the Internet, promising to transform the ways in which people and businesses cooperate. The second generation of open source blockchain projects such as Openchain, Ethereum and the Hyperledger Project illustrate how open source platforms are evolving in different directions to support distributed transactions and contracts of all types.
With an eye to keeping the hype factor to a minimum, this webinar will explore the promise and potential of blockchain and look at some of the many exciting open source blockchain projects being implemented today.
The Equifax breach provided a unique look into “how” many breaches occur. In Equifax’s case, hackers exploited an unpatched Apache Struts component, resulting in the exposure of over 140 million consumer records. The exploit of this vulnerability highlights the need for visibility to open source in custom applications and just how ineffective traditional security solutions are when it comes to open source vulnerabilities.
Further, while class action lawsuits have already begun, Equifax faces other regulatory challenges as well. The US Federal Trade Commission started investigations into the company’s security policies and controls that will likely result in financial penalties. Since the exposed data included non-US citizens, foreign data protection and data privacy regulations also come into play.
Join Mike Pittenger and Patrick Carey as they discuss how organizations can more effectively manage open source, the strengths and weaknesses of testing methodologies in identifying vulnerable open source components, and how data privacy standards such as PCI, Section 5 of the FTC Act, and GDPR necessitate a change in how organizations address vulnerabilities in their code.

More and more innovation in the healthcare industry is powered by open source software, whether it’s for a new pacemaker or the latest Electronic Medical Records (EMR) platform.
A recent study of more than 1,000 commercial software applications found that open source components comprised 46% of the code in commercial applications for healthcare-related industries. But with innovation comes risk. The same research uncovered high-risk open source security vulnerabilities in 47% of the healthcare applications studied.
A focused approach to managing open source risk is essential as HIPAA and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) put new pressures on healthcare providers and technology companies to protect patient data privacy and security.
If you're concerned with healthcare application security, learn why open source management is essential for your overall security strategy.
Your developers love open source. It saves coding. It saves time. It makes software better, faster. But, it comes with responsibility; like licenses to track, updates to make and security to protect. This means your team spends valuable time tracking every module; manually…via emails…and spreadsheets, while key dependencies, new versions and worse get missed. This, your developers do not love. Those security and licenses risks are exactly the reason we created WhiteSource
WhiteSource integrates with any build tool, running in the background as part of your continuous integration environment.When it comes time to release, you have a full status report of all your open source at your fingertips…And no surprises. WhiteSource makes meticulously managing open source effortless. Your developers will love that.So will your sales team.Which is why you are really going to love WhiteSource!
In this webinar we learn how to address any open source security concerns within your organization, understand the difference between securing your open source components and your proprietary code, learn how you can automatically detect vulnerable open source components, and discover ways to avoid the pitfalls of un-managed open source usage.Read more >
Legislators in Europe continue to expand the scope of the laws governing information security and personal data protection. As a result, organizations serving consumers and businesses in the region need to understand the implications these laws will have on their use of open source to build software applications.
During this educational webinar led by Dan Hedley, Partner, IT and Commercial from Irwin Mitchell, we’ll provide guidance on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and why a comprehensive approach to open source security management is essential for GDPR observance. In addition, we’ll review open source management best practices in context of other industry-specific developments like the Network and Information Services Directive and the Electronic Identification Regulation.
Today, open source drives technology and development, and its worldwide adoption ranges from companies with a single employee to large corporations like Microsoft and Apple. All of these organizations rely on open source to innovate, reduce development costs, and speed time to market. Recent research reports point out that open source comprises 80% to 90% of the code in a typical application. Our Open Source 360° survey provides an update on the rapid evolution of open source development, use and management.
The 2017 Open Source 360° survey was conducted through Black Duck’s Center for Open Source Research & Innovation (COSRI), focusing on four important areas of open source – usage, risk, contributions and governance/policies. Our respondents include input from new players, established leaders, and influencers across vertical markets and communities. This range of respondents drives broad industry awareness and discussions of these key issues.
Please join Technology Evangelist Tim Mackey (@timintech) and CMO Bob Canaway (@bobcanaway) to review the results from the Open Source 360 Survey. Please bring your questions!
