Open Source Library Conundrum: Managing Risk

When software development moves at the speed of DevOps, creating every line of code from scratch is simply not feasible. In turn, most development shops are increasingly relying on open source libraries to supplement their code. The use of these open source libraries is not in itself a bad thing, on the contrary, it’s best practice, and not taking advantage of this code would put your organization at a competitive disadvantage. The risky part lies with the visibility. What happens when it’s revealed that an open source library contains a major vulnerability? Would you know if you are using that library? What about where or how you are using it? Could you find out fast enough to patch it? Attend this session to get up to speed on open source library use, including its risks and best practices.
