PCI and Vulnerability Assessments - What’s Missing?
All regulatory requirements (HIPAA, PCI, etc.) include a mandate for assessing vulnerabilities in systems that manage or store sensitive data. Organizations often opt to conduct vulnerability assessments on an annual, quarterly, or even monthly basis. But while vulnerability assessment tools can identify unpatched or misconfigured code bases, these tools overlook a large portion of an organization’s attack surface: known vulnerabilities in applications that are built in-house. These applications will not have public updates, nor will the thousands of open source components they utilize be included in public disclosures. This is concerning because over 6,000 vulnerabilities in open source projects have been reported since 2014. Register for this webinar to discover how to protect yourself.

DevOps organizations are increasing turning to container environments to meet the demand for faster, more agile software delivery. Container orchestration presents the most effective way to manage the operational challenges as these production environments scale. However, large-scale container deployments present a new array of security challenges, including how to properly manage open source security risk. A 2017 451 research report recently identified security as the single biggest hurdle to container adoption.
The challenges of managing security risk increase in scope and complexity with the size of your deployment and the number of open source software components that are a part of your application code base. In 2017, dozens of new CVEs were reported every day, making it essential to have good visibility into and control over the open source in use in order to understand if any known vulnerabilities are present.
Join experts from Red Hat and Black Duck as they share the latest insights and recommendations for securing open source in your containers. You’ll learn:
- The role of containers in addressing some of the problems faced by teams moving to DevOps
- How OpenShift enhances that solution by answering questions of networking, image registries, deployment automation, application lifecycle, etc.
- Why container environments present new application security challenges, including those posed by open source
- How to scan applications running in containers to identify open source and map against known vulnerabilities
- Best practices and methodologies for deploying secure containers with trust

Vulnerabilities are an inevitable part of software development and management. Whether it’s open source or custom code, new vulnerabilities will be discovered as a code base ages. A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as severe. As the number of disclosures, patches, and updates grows, security professionals must decide which items are critical and must be addressed immediately and which items can be deferred.
Join Black Duck’s VP of Security Strategy, Mike Pittenger, for a 30-minute discussion of best practices in open source security and vulnerability management. You’ll learn:
- Methods for determining which applications are most attractive to attackers, and which pose the greatest risk
- Ways to assess the risk associated with a disclosed open source vulnerability
- Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can’t be made

DevOps teams are using cloud platforms and containers to build, deploy, and manage applications faster than ever, and utilizing large amounts of open-source software to increase agility. Google Cloud platform makes building and shipping containers even easier with Google Container Builder, Google Container Engine (GKE), and Google Container Registry (GCR). But when you deploy a container or cloud-native application, it’s hard to know exactly what contents are inside, and that can make managing security painful.
Secure DevOps means having full visibility and control of your software supply chain to implement security and governance policies. How do you protect your DevOps without slowing down? Join experts from Google and Black Duck to discuss how to secure the software supply chain including:
- Understanding the modern attack landscape
- How to select safe and healthy open source software in development
- How you can automate open source control and visibility in containers with Black Duck and both Google Container Builder and GCR
- The Grafeas and Kritis projects, and the work Google and Black Duck are doing to enhance security visibility and provide policy enforcement for containers.

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 Bob Canaway 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.

Managing container infrastructure in a production environment is challenged by problems of scale. One of the biggest problems is trust—specifically trust of the application. To put it another way, can you trust that all containers in your Kubernetes or OpenShift cluster are performing the tasks you expect of them? We know that containerization has increased the pace of deployment, but has trust kept pace? If a container becomes compromised in some fashion, how many other containers are at risk and how far has trust been broken?
Tim Mackey explores the nature of data center threats, why threat models fail, how malicious attackers design their attacks, when the threat risk increases prior to attack and why information flow matters, and how traditional defenses are inadequate for container workloads. Tim then shares measures you can take to proactively identify risks, including OpenShift integrated tooling to identify container images with increased risk.

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.
