  • Healthcare and Open Source – Balancing Innovation Against Risk Recorded: Aug 8 2017 59 mins
    Jim DeGraw, Partner, Ropes & Gray; Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck
    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.

    Tim Mackey, Sr. Technology Evangelist, Black Duck; Bob Canaway, CMO, Black Duck
    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.

  • Litigating Open Source – Lessons learned from Hellwig and McHardy Recorded: Mar 23 2017 62 mins
    Mark Radcliffe, DLA Piper; Bernd Siebers, DLA Piper, Phil Odence, Black Duck
    The next wave of open source compliance challenges is upon us. Historically, enforcement has been a community based effort with an emphasis on “doing the right thing”. In recent years, however, we have seen the emergence of private enforcement and enforcement driven by entities and individuals for purposes of economic gain. In some cases these actions are to enforce legitimate interests arising from, for instance, dual licensing models. In other cases, copyright “trolls” are pressing an agenda. In this webinar, Mark Radcliffe and Bernd Siebers will review some of the current litigation trends, evaluate how the different elements of the open source community are reacting to these trends and offer insights and strategies for avoiding the cross-hairs. This includes taking a closer look at open source cases litigated in 2016 in Germany, including the following questions:

    - Are we experiencing a shift in jurisprudence?
    - What should users and developers of open source software do to protect themselves?
    - What's the contribution of the open source community?
  • The Case for Continuous Open Source Management Recorded: Mar 22 2017 45 mins
    Bob Genshaft, Wolters Kluwer; Phil Odence, Black Duck Software
    Companies are constantly seeking ways to ensure their application code is secure and effectively managed. For example, M&A acquirers conduct one-time code audits on companies they are buying to avoid legal, operational or security pitfalls. Other organizations are proactive, using an ongoing solution to make sure their application code is secure and well managed on a day-to-day basis. Increasingly, many companies are opting to use both approaches.

    Join Bob Genshaft, Director Strategic Programs at Wolters Kluwer, and Black Duck's VP and General Manager On-Demand Audits Phil Odence for a discussion that will address key open source security and management questions:

    · When is it appropriate to conduct an audit?
    · When should your company consider an ongoing solution?
    · What are the benefits of doing both?
