In today’s digital era, business and IT leaders face increasingly pressure to accelerate digital transformation initiatives without compromising on speed-to-market and cost. With this, many are turning to modern application development to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives to support business growth.
When embracing modern application development, businesses are gaining tremendous agility, but at the same time, exposing themselves to Software supply chain risks due to the ever-increasing use of Open Source Software (OSS). Considering the fact that many of the recent attacks are software supply chain-related, it is not surprising that Gartner has identified digital supply chain risk as a new security threat and one of its top seven security and risk management trends for 2022. With the effects of cyberattacks ranging from the loss of missions of dollars, all the way to the potential loss of one’s business, investing in software supply chain security has never been more critical.
This is an interactive session we discussed the below topics:
- What is supply chain risk and what it matters to your team
- What could be done differently to address visibility into DevSecOps and hidden risks
- How to provide greater collaboration between development and security teams
- How to leverage automation technology to drive better business results, secure your software, reduce development time and cost
