Legal Compliance for Modern Software Development

Presented by

Evan LeBon, VP, Head of Legal, Abnormal Security

About this talk

As a technology-focused attorney with several leading software companies, Evan LeBon has had a front-row seat to the evolution of software development — and the profound impact it’s had on in-house counsel. The shift from a handful of releases each year to the modern world of dynamic build pipelines, automation, and CI/CD has forced legal teams to address a variety of new challenges. -How do you balance the need for product compliance and IP protections with engineering’s desire to move quickly? -What’s the most effective way to structure communication and collaboration with modern development teams? -How do you keep mission-critical documentation like SBOMs and open source attribution notices up to date? -What new tools and processes are necessary to make all of this possible? Evan will answer these questions and more on Wednesday, Nov. 2 during the webinar "Legal Compliance for Modern Software Development." We’ll discuss specific ways in-house counsel can ensure compliance processes keep pace with development, including: -How understanding and embracing engineering culture can help in-house counsel work more effectively with development teams -How open source license compliance management processes should evolve to keep pace with continuous software release cycles -How automated tools can save legal teams significant time on compliance and documentation
