Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by Security Boulevard

On Demand

There is increasing focus on the security of open source software in the wake of a series of high-profile breaches involving software supply chains. As most, if not all, applications developed today use some form of open source code, the concern is that a bad actor will contribute code loaded with malware to a widely-used project. Fortunately, the open source community and a broad coalition of vendors are now rallying to create the tools and processes needed to secure open source software.

In this editorial webinar, we’ll examine the current state of application security, the challenges associated with ensuring code is free of vulnerabilities and explore some of the best practices organizations can take to shift security further left in the software development life cycle.
