Understanding The Role Of Software Bill Of Materials In Cybersecurity Readiness

Recorded February 1, 2022

Cybersecurity issues are top of mind across the open source community, and beyond. In response to the ongoing threat of cyber attacks, Linux Foundation Research, in partnership with SPDX, OpenChain, and OpenSSF, has conducted the first in a series of research projects to understand the challenges and opportunities for securing software supply chains. This soon-to-be-published report, The State of Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) and Cybersecurity Readiness, will be released to coincide with this webinar.

Learn from the experts first hand about the opportunities and challenges for implementing cybersecurity best practices through SBOMs, and why we need to act now!

Join this webinar to learn:

  • What the research reveals about the current state of cybersecurity standards and best practices adoption.
  • Why should organizations be implementing SBOMs today?
  • What are the obstacles to SBOM adoption?
  • How can SBOM production and consumption rates be improved, and obstacles overcome?
