How to Accelerate Open Source Adoption, Not Open Source Risk

Presented by

Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager at Veracode

About this talk

In a recent blinded survey by Red Hat to more than 950 global IT leaders, 69 percent said Open Source Software was very or extremely important to the organisation’s overall enterprise infrastructure software plans. With the advantages of speed, agility, and cost-reduction, open-source software libraries are here to stay. However, with the delineated ownership in open source development can introduce new and sometimes dangerous software risks to an enterprise. It’s vital to have a strategy and framework in place to manage open source libraries and components. Otherwise, the road to digital transformation will likely be paved with frustrations, problems, and even failures. Open source software risks revolve around three key areas: visibility, security, and governance. In this session we will help you understand these factors and how to formulate a stronger cybersecurity strategy that protects you from open source risk.
