Addressing Cybersecurity Challenges In Open Source Software: Expert Panel Livestream June 28, 2022

Recorded June 28, 2022

Join Us for a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by Snyk

Open source software (OSS) has had a tremendous impact on the development and distribution of the software we depend on today. Through its collaborative and open way of both developing and sharing software components, OSS has served as a key engine for innovation and encouraged the widespread reuse and sharing of core software components. Organizations of all sizes are heavily reliant on software, and much of that software supply chain consists of open source software components. Because of this, open source software has cybersecurity implications.

Snyk partnered with The Linux Foundation to develop a report that focuses on OSS security perspectives and how to improve OSS security and sustainability. For this webinar, Snyk and The Linux Foundation research analysts will share new insights based on the data collected.

Join this live panel webinar as we discuss key data points surrounding:

  • How organizations are addressing and prioritizing their cybersecurity needs 
  • The most important ways to improve open source software security
  • Who should be driving open source software security policies
