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

Larry Maccherone, Sr. Director DevSecOps Transformation, Comcast
Security specialists, especially at large organizations, believe that better security comes from robust independent gating. On the other hand, DevOps has proven that you can safely deploy orders of magnitude faster than human gating can achieve.
What’s needed to add security to DevOps are tools that work well with rapid-cycle CI/CD pipelines and an approach that reinforces the DevOps culture and process changes. This requires that security specialists become self-service toolsmiths and advisors and stop thinking of themselves as gatekeepers.
This webinar includes guidance on the characteristics of security tools compatible with DevOps, but it focuses primarily on the harder part: the people. This talk introduces the DevSecOps manifesto and provides you with a process model, based on agile transformation techniques, to accomplish the necessary mindset shift and achieve an effective DevSecOps culture transformation. It has been successfully used in a large DevSecOps transformation at Comcast and has gained recognition in DevSecOps circles as a leading framework.
Taylor Armerding, Senior Security Strategist for Synopsys
It’s been more than six months since the major design flaw in computer chips labeled Spectre became public. And, as predicted, it is still haunting the world of information technology. The CPU (central processing unit) is, after all, the “brain” of any computer, phone, tablet, modern TV, or other “smart” device.
Since then, we’ve all learned a bit about terms some of us had never heard before—“speculative execution,” anyone? We’ve also been told that you can’t just patch a chip the way you can patch bugs in software. But you can create work-arounds with software patches.
In this webinar, Taylor Armerding, senior security strategist for Synopsys Software Integrity Group, will address some of the questions that “regular”—i.e., nontechnical—users may have about Spectre:
- What is it?
- How does it work?
- Why does it work?
- Why didn’t chip makers catch a flaw of this magnitude during the design phase?
- Why is a tool called static analysis the best way to work around Spectre without causing intolerable performance slowdowns?

The use of open source has surpassed the occasional and solidified itself as the standard. In fact, the Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis found that 96% of the applications we scanned last year contained open source components.
It’s increasingly difficult to properly manage open source in an organization to ensure compliance with the over 2,000 different licenses in use today and defend against new vulnerabilities, which surface frequently.
Join this webinar with 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 & Affiliates) as they discuss best practices for managing open source in an organization and throughout an M&A transaction:
- How do you conduct an open source / third-party software audit?
- How do you get the most out of your Black Duck code scan?
i.e. Handling license compliance issues and managing security vulnerabilities
- What are key aspects of an effective open source / third-party software policy for both inbound use and outbound contributions?
- What are key success factors for effectively releasing code as open source?

SAST, IAST, DAST, MAST, *AST – There are plenty of technologies and ways to test your software, but how do we do that without slowing us down in a rapid development environment. In this session we will give practical advice on how to integrate software security testing into your CI/CD and your development process so it works. The session will review the pros and cons of each of the testing technologies, how to adapt it to rapid development, and how to make testing work as organizations are moving to A/B testing. Finally, this session will guide on how to manage the balance between risk and speed to build the right process, so that real threats will become blockers, but other issues will be handled in a parallel, slower cycle, without slowing down the main delivery.

Chris Clark, Principal Security Engineer – Strategic Initiatives, Synopsys
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.

Open source components are the foundation of modern applications, but ineffective management of open source can lead to serious risks and unwanted media attention when security flaws lead to data breaches. The Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) examines the previous year’s open source and security news and analyzes trends based on the audits of more than 1,100 codebases.
This webinar will detail the findings in the OSSRA report, showing that M&A target organizations are not always effective in securing and managing their open source. Not surprisingly, 96% of audited codebases contained open source components, and nearly 78% contained at least one vulnerability. We’ll discuss these findings and the risk associated with not understanding them before making investment decisions.

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
James Croall, Director of SAST Product Management at Synopsys
The recently discovered Spectre security vulnerability has taken the tech industry and security world by storm. By exploiting security vulnerabilities inherent in the design of many modern microprocessors, Spectre attacks can cause damaging leakage of personal information and data.
There are several proposed workarounds to protect applications affected by Spectre. However, they can adversely affect performance and be time consuming for developers.
A novel solution to mitigate Spectre is to use a static analysis tool that quickly identifies vulnerable code patterns that are likely to be exploited and reduces potential app performance degradation. In this webinar, James Croall, director of SAST product management at Synopsys, will detail how this works and cover the following:
-What is Spectre and how is the attack carried out?
-What are the various ways to mitigate the effects of this attack?
-What can software development organizations do to help secure their apps against Spectre?
-What are some best practices and examples of how to use Synopsys Static Analysis (Coverity) to better secure your apps against Spectre attacks?

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
