Open source software is the foundation for application development worldwide, comprising 80 to 90% of the code in today's applications. Its value in reducing development costs, speeding time to market and accelerating innovation is driving adoption, but the explosion in open source use has not been accompanied by effective security and management practices.
A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as "severe."
Join IT industry veteran Lenny Liebmann and Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger for a discussion of best practices in open source security and management to reduce application security risk.
Topics discussed in the event will include:
-- Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can't be made
-- Ways to assess the risk associated with a discovered open source vulnerability
-- Scalable approaches to designing application testing for different agile-development pipelines.
