  • Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers Apr 11 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Phil Odence, General Manager, Black Duck On-Demand
    In over 1000 code bases audited in 2018, Black Duck found that nearly every one contained open source components. Not only that, but a significant % of “proprietary code” overall was open source. Virtually every company building software is now depending on open source, and with great reason. However, left unmanaged, open source can lead to license compliance issues plus security and code quality risks. Whether you’re on the buy side or sell side, these risks could negatively valuation in an M&A transaction.

    Many acquirers have come to understand all this in concept; Black Duck has the data. Join us for this webinar as we answer questions about the code of tech companies being acquired today. We’ll cover:

    • Open source license and security risks by the numbers
    • Why audits have become the norm in M&A tech due diligence
    • How you can get a complete picture of open source risks

  • Understanding Open Source – Strengths and Challenges for Enterprise users Apr 11 2019 5:30 am UTC 90 mins
    Balaji Bhardwaj, Senior Security Engineer, Synopsys Software Integrity Group
    Open source usage has had a steady increase over the years and so has the Open Source content, which has seen exponential release. The strength of open source is attributed to the fact that there has been a growing adoption of Open source in enterprise application.

    In our 11th April 2019 webinar, Balaji Bhardwaj, Senior Security Engineer, Synopsys Software Integrity Group, will provide insights into the following:
    •Usage trends of Open Source

    •Is Open Source an enabler or a liability
  • Top Considerations for Software Audits in M&A Due Diligence Mar 21 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Phil Odence, Synopsys
    There is risk in any M&A transaction but having the right tech due diligence approach can help mitigate those risks. If software is a large part of the deal valuation, you need to understand any potential legal and security risks in the target’s codebase that could affect the value of the IP, and the remediation required to address those risks.

    Join Phil Odence, General Manager of Black Duck On-Demand with Synopsys, to take a closer look at how you can identify and reduce risks in M&A tech due diligence. He’ll cover the following points and more:

    • Application Risks: What’s in the code
    • Taking a comprehensive approach to security audits
    • Choosing the right partner for audits

  • Master Class: Life Cycle of an Open Source Vulnerability Mar 13 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tim Mackey, Sr. Technology Evangelist, Synopsys SIG
    The world of software development has firmly adopted open source development paradigms. Regardless of the type of application you’re developing, it’s safe to say that open source is a key part of your solution—whether you wanted it to be or not. Similarly, developers deal with security issues in their code throughout the development cycle, but most don’t think about how open source components affect the security of their end product. In this master class, we’ll look at how open source development works, how open source components are embedded in solutions, and how an open source vulnerability is both disclosed and patched. After all, while open source software is just as secure as its commercial cousins, the security disclosure processes for the two types of software is far from the same!
  • Shifting Gears: Focus on Cybersecurity Feb 27 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Larry Ponemon, Founder, Ponemon Institute; Tim Weisenberger, PM, SAE; Chris Clark, Principal Security Engineer, Synopsys
    Today’s vehicle is a connected, mobile computer, a situation that has introduced an issue the automotive industry has limited experience dealing with: cybersecurity risk. Automotive manufacturers have become as much software companies as they are transportation companies, facing all the challenges inherent to software security.

  • Meeting Enterprise AppSec Needs With Coverity 2018.12 Recorded: Jan 31 2019 51 mins
    Yatin Patil, Product Management, Coverity
    As organizations come to rely heavily on software to perform critical business functions and deliver customer value, cyberattacks have unfortunately become common. Web application attacks were responsible for 38% of data breaches in 2018. Securing these applications is critical to promote customer trust, protect business critical information and the company’s reputation. Fixing vulnerabilities before applications are deployed isn’t just smart, it saves downstream costs too.

    Modern web applications are increasingly reliant on frameworks that simplify the application code but can introduce their own vulnerabilities. In this webinar we discuss how the Coverity 2018.12 release enables organizations to build secure web applications faster. The latest release addresses three increasingly important needs for enterprise application security teams: scalability, broad language and framework support, and comprehensive vulnerability analysis. Building upon its historic advantages in deep, accurate code analysis, Coverity 2018.12 greatly expands upon its coverage of web languages and popular frameworks and makes it fast and easy to analyze applications. The result is applications that are inherently more secure before they are deployed into production.

    In this webinar Yatin Patil, Senior Product Manager for Coverity will cover:
    •Importance of application security testing
    •Enterprise application security best practices
    •What a SAST solution needs to provide
    •Newest features of Coverity 2018.12
  • Managing the Business Risks of Open Source Recorded: Jan 24 2019 61 mins
    Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security, 451 Research & Phil Odence, GM, Black Duck by Synopsys
    It’s no secret that “software is eating the world,” as Marc Andreessen once described—and it’s taking entire development communities to support it. Recently, open source has become a primary contributor to software found in the enterprise. According to a 2018 report from the Synopsys Center for Open Source Research & Innovation, the average percentage of open source in codebases examined in Black Duck audits has increased to 57% from only 36% from the previous year. But open source isn’t risk-free—and the implications can have a direct impact on the business.

    Join Scott Crawford, research director for information security with 451 Research, and Phil Odence, general manager of Black Duck On-Demand with Synopsys, to take a closer look at open source risks and the ways that businesses can better evaluate and mitigate them. They’ll cover the following points and more:

    • One of the highest-profile breaches of 2017 was the result of a widely exposed vulnerability in a popular open source application component, exposing millions of personal financial records—and costing business leaders their jobs.
    • In just the last few weeks, the implicit trust on which the open source ecosystem is based has been exploited to steal tangible assets.
    • What’s the real cost of a data breach? In at least one highly visible case, a breach reduced the dollar value of an acquisition by hundreds of millions. As business dependence on open source grows, so too does business exposure.
    • And of course, compliance with open source licenses remains a concern.

    Getting a handle on taming these threats to the business requires an approach that fits with the central role open source plays in the fast-moving world of continuous innovation.

  • Beyond Open Source Compliance: Security in M&A Due Diligence Recorded: Dec 12 2018 30 mins
    Nabil Hannan, Managing Principal, Synopsys
    The headline of Wall Street Journal article from March read “Due Diligence on Cybersecurity Becomes Bigger Factor in M&A.” In April, Gartner reported, “Cybersecurity is Critical to the M&A Due Diligence Process.” Companies that invest in open source license compliance as part of diligence are starting to dive more deeply into security issues.
    A first step in assigning the security of software assets is looking at known vulnerabilities in open source components. But, now as part of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, Black Duck can bring much broader capabilities to bear to analyze the overall security of code assets, including proprietary code.
    This webinar will discuss application security issues at a high level and the security services that you can include with a due diligence audit.
