AppSec Guide: The Open Source Supply Chain Can Be Fixed

Threats exist at each level of the supply chain. This guide can help AppSec and InfoSec leaders investigate the current state of their development processes, understand the threats at each stage, and create a plan to improve their open source supply chain security. Mitigate the risk associated with working with open source software and close the weakest link in their supply chain.

Like it or not, software vendors are now the frontline of security for their customers. Security and software professionals alike must take steps to ensure their existing software development processes have not been compromised, and to secure their software supply chain going forward. 

As software supply chain complexity increases, verifying the security and integrity of the software development lifecycle must rely more and more on automated validation of key software development processes when importing, building and consuming open source components. To date, this has been accomplished by cobbling together point solutions from multiple vendors, as well as implementing best practices at a cost of significant time and resources.

This white paper can help industry leaders responsible for the security and integrity of the software they produce to investigate the current state of their development processes, understand the threats at each stage, and create a plan to improve their open source supply chain security. Download the white paper and let’s get working!
