What's Hiding in Your Software Components? Hidden Risks of Component-Based Software
Software is no longer written, it's assembled. With 80% of a typical application now being assembled from components, it's time to take a hard look at the new risks posed by this type of development -- and the processes and tools that we'll need in order to keep them in check.
On the just released OWASP Top 10 for 2013, entry A9 highlights the potential problems associated with the widespread use of open-source components with known security vulnerabilities in modern-day application development.
Join Ryan Berg, Sonatype CSO, as he shares real world data on component risks, outlines the scope of the problem, and proposes approaches for managing these risk. You'll learn how security professionals can work cooperatively with application developers to reduce risk AND boost developer efficiency.
Ryan is the Chief Security Officer at Sonatype. Before joining Sonatype, Ryan was a co-founder and chief scientist for Ounce Labs which was acquired by IBM in 2009. Ryan holds multiple patents and is a popular speaker, instructor and author, in the fields of security, risk management, and secure application development.
