Beyond Open Source Compliance: Security in M&A Due Diligence

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.

  • Remote Security Testing & Training: Busting Myths and Offering Solutions Jul 1 2020 3:30 pm UTC 62 mins
    Sandesh Mysore Anand, Managing Consultant at Synopsys and Rakshitha R Rao, Security Consultant at Synopsys
    While digital transformation and BYOD have allowed many IT activities to occur remotely, many enterprises still prefer to perform security testing on-site. Concerns about data security, network/application accessibility, assessment quality and project management have discouraged teams from making the leap. In this webinar, we leverage lessons learned from many years of delivering Managed Application Security Services to provide guidelines on addressing these concerns and offer solutions on how to conduct remote security testing and security training.
  • 5 Steps to Integrate SAST into the DevSecOps Pipeline Jun 25 2020 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Meera Rao, Senior Principal Consultant, Synopsys
    Even software with a solid architecture and design can harbor vulnerabilities, whether due to mistakes or shortcuts. But limited security staff don’t have the resources to perform code reviews and provide remediation guidance on the entire application portfolio. Static analysis, also known as static application security testing (SAST), is an automated way to find bugs, back doors, and other code-based vulnerabilities so the team can mitigate those risks.

    First, though, you must choose a static analysis model that fits your needs. You might have questions such as these:
    - How do I manage false positives?
    - How do I triage the results?
    - What happens to new issues identified?
    - My scan takes hours to complete. How can I use this tool in my DevSecOps pipeline?
    - What is a “baseline scan”?

    Join us as we walk you through the challenges and benefits of integrating a SAST tool into your DevSecOps pipeline and how we’ve helped other organizations with this process.
  • The DoS goes loop-di-loop Jun 23 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Allon Mureinik, Senior Manager, Synopsys
    Do you know the common ways Node.js applications may be vulnerable to denial-of-service attacks?

    The single-threaded nature of Node.js makes it very susceptible to DoS attacks. While the Node.js event loop allows you to perform some operations asynchronously, it’s still quite easy to write a vulnerable Node.js application by making a few simple mistakes.

    In this talk I’ll cover some common ways a Node.js application may be vulnerable to DoS attacks and some common best practices and countermeasures to defend against such attacks.
  • Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence? Jun 18 2020 4:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys & Daniel Sturtevant, CEO and Co-founder, Silverthread
    (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

    In an acquisition where a software asset is a core part of the deal valuation, it’s important to understand the overall quality of the software before doing the deal. Buggy software is problematic and needs to be cleaned up, so assessing code quality is important. But also, with poorly designed software, every fix is costly, laborious, and risky. The cost of fixes can significantly affect the long-term technical and economic viability of the application, and maintaining the software can seriously degrade ROI. That’s why understanding a software system’s design and architectural health and the likely “cost of ownership” is key.

    Join us for this lwebinar to learn how to paint a complete picture of the technical quality of software to avoid buyer’s remorse post-close. We’ll cover:

    •The dimensions of technical due diligence
    •The difference between design quality and code quality
    •How software architecture can have a long-term impact
    •What to look for in software design and code quality audits

  • Shifting Left to Accelerate Security Approvals for ATOs in Defense Programs Jun 17 2020 6:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Joe Jarzombek, Director for Government & Critical Infrastructure Programs
    Demands for more secure software and more rapid application development have led to the emergence of risk-based DevSecOps, which adds security activities, increases depth, and improves testing governance. The best strategy is to shift from a reactive to a proactive security approach that injects security at the right time and place with automated continuous testing. Arming developers with proven application security tools integrated within their supporting CI/CD toolchains reduces the time and effort needed to achieve authorization for changes in software to operate on a DOD network or weapon system. Key technologies such as static application security testing (SAST) and software composition analysis (SCA) help developers deliver high-quality and more secure codebases in the front end of the pipeline. Mitigating technical debt early in the software development life cycle (SDLC) provides significant cost savings while accelerating the delivery of more secure software.

    Join Joe Jarzombek (USAF Lt. Col., retired) as he discusses means for successfully scaling responsiveness with a secure SDLC. He will cover how:

    •Automated continuous testing can be used throughout the SDLC
    •Catching security defects at the desktop can be like using a spell-checker to drive savings while rapidly mitigating risks attributable to exploitable software
    •Developer productivity can provide more time for creating new features rather than fixing newly entered issues

  • Open Source Risk in M&A by the Numbers Recorded: May 21 2020 58 mins
    Phil Odence, Synopsys
    In over 1,000 codebases audited in 2019, Black Duck Audits found that nearly every one contained open source components. Not only that, but a significant percentage of “proprietary code” overall was open source. 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 affect valuation in an M&A transaction.

    Many acquirers have come to understand all this in concept; the Black Duck Audit Services group 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
