The Case for Continuous Open Source Management

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?

  • Why Software Composition Analysis is Critical to Secure DevOps Recorded: May 16 2017 37 mins
    Amy DeMartine, Forrester Principal Analyst; Patrick Carey, Black Duck
    Open source software is the lifeblood of today’s enterprise applications, comprising 80%-90% of the code. However, open source use comes with significant security and IP risks that both enterprise and smaller organizations are ill-prepared to address.

    As development teams increasingly automate the software development lifecycle (SDLC) through the use of agile DevOps tools and practices, the need to mitigate these risks through integration of Software Composition Analysis (SCA) into the DevOps tool chain has become critical.

    In this 60-minute webinar, guest speaker, Forrester Principal Analyst Amy DeMartine, and Black Duck Director of Product Marketing Patrick Carey, will discuss findings from the recent report: The Forrester Wave™: Software Composition Analysis, Q1 2017 and why SCA should be a key part of your Secure DevOps strategy.

    The discussion topics will include:
    - Why you need a software composition analysis (SCA) solution
    - How SCA solutions help you manage open source vulnerability, compliance, and component quality risks
    - Criteria to consider when selecting an SCA solution
    - Why it's important to integrate SCA into your automated DevOps environment

  • 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?
