Trying to keep pace in a highly connected world and increasingly hostile environment is a challenge for any developer, let alone an entire industry. To protect the software they write, developers turn to technologies and processes such as audits, reverse engineering, application firewalls, sandboxing, and many others to provide a level of protection. But these technologies also have the potential to become entry points for vulnerabilities. So do we really trust software?
See how Synopsys started the software security journey and is taking an active role in providing industry expertise to help organizations deliver robust software security solutions. We will focus on how the cyber supply chain can have a direct and meaningful impact on the overall design and deployment of software. See how known vulnerability management, mitigation, and training can affect the known risk profile of overall software design. Learn about what we are working on and how you can participate in improving standards and programs that reduce cyber risk.

To learn more about the realities of DevSecOps today and the real degree to which security is or is not being included in enterprise continuous integration/continuous delivery workflows, we surveyed 350 decision-makers at large enterprises across a variety of industries.
What we found is that only about half of enterprise CI/CD workflows include any security elements at all, highlighting ample room for improvement. Enterprises did seem to show an awareness of the importance of adding security elements into DevOps releases, but they are not necessarily injecting security early in the process -- ideally at code commit and in pre-implementation. This webinar will cover these and other results of our survey, and offer guidance on how enterprise organizations can effectively integrate security tools, thinking and people into their CI/CD workflows to reduce rework and risk without sacrificing velocity.

Open source software is an important part of mainstream software development organizations. Active open source use in development can drive down costs, speed time to market and increase software functionality, all without adding to the bottom line.
And yet, even as it has become mainstream, open source is often misunderstood by legal professionals. With over two thousand different licenses in use today, it can be difficult to properly manage open source and ensure compliance.
In this webinar, top open source legal experts Mark Radcliffe (Partner at DLA Piper and General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative) and Tony Decicco (Shareholder, GTC Law Group) will cover:
- Brief history and definition of open source
- The most popular open source licenses and their obligations
- Permissive licenses vs. Restrictive licenses

Organizations of all kinds increasingly rely on third-party software from their supply chain partners and outsourcers to power the products and technology they deliver to the marketplace. Whether you’re an automotive company or a medical device manufacturer, use of third-party software libraries is now commonplace and essential to success in the competitive global marketplace.
One of the biggest challenges companies face with third-party software is they often have no visibility into the open source libraries being used in the software they embed in their products. Over the last year, a continuous stream of news stories has attributed major security breaches to exploits of vulnerabilities in open source frameworks used by Fortune 100 companies in education, government, financial services, retail and media.
These incidents shine a light on the need for organizations to carefully manage the open source used in the third-party libraries they consumer in order to protect themselves—and their customers—from the consequences of catastrophic security breaches.
Our webinar will arm you with the information and statistics needed to:
-Explain the importance of open source security to your organization
-Understand the key differences between identifying open source in source code vs. binaries
-Define a clear road map for unearthing, managing, and securing the open source hiding in your software supply chain
-Take the steps to help your company avoid becoming the next security breach media story
