mitigate open source risks

 

Introduction

The popularity of Open Source Software (OSS) Technologies in the recent years has greatly impacted the development and innovation of software.

The typical enterprise and application stack is made up of over 50% open source technologies. This mass adoption has helped every organization increase developer productivity and software production, as well as speed up the adoption of new technologies. 

While many companies take advantage of OSS to improve their products and infrastructure, they often lag behind in the management and support of the OSS technologies they use. However, due to the fact that an organization's process involves hundreds to thousands of OSS components, errors and vulnerabilities are likely to arise and affect the enterprise's process, risk profile and DevOps productivity.

In order to mitigate the possible risks posed by these vulnerabilities, organizations, software executives and risk analysts need to understand the underpinnings of their infrastructure in order to be ready to repel attacks and threats.

Most organizations are only aware of 2% of their OSS usage. Organizations and enterprises must establish an efficient and effective process for choosing, managing and remediating the OSS they base their company's success on.

In this webinar, We will provide guidance for understanding the fundamental framework, important issues and concerns in Open Source adoption within the Enterprise, and share expert thoughts and practical tips in maximizing the benefits of using open source technologies and the best practices in managing security and legal risks.
