About this talk

With the proliferation of COTS, Open Source Software, libraries, frameworks, APIs, and other components, modern software is increasingly assembled instead of coded from scratch. While this shift helps deliver feature-rich solutions and interoperability, it also introduces risk and data security challenges. To manage 3rd-party risks, new assessment and mitigation techniques are needed. Fixing the code is often impossible, pen testing can be limiting, and patching still leaves you exposed.      Join host Ed Adams, a Ponemon Institute research fellow, for a panel discussion with security professionals, including: JOHN MASSERINI Global CISO, Millicom (Tigo) Telecommunications An industry-recognized leader, John has decades of experience providing Information Security services to multinational organizations in diverse verticals.
