Synopsis

Please join us for a review of some of the challenges of managing software supply chains and how DevSecOps processes and technology play a crucial role in helping to address the requirements.

The SolarWinds hack clearly demonstrated the damaging impact supply chain compromise can generate and served dramatically to raise the profile and importance of supply chain integrity.

In this presentation Andrew will examine the threat points in the software creation pipeline processes, from code commit through to application deployment, highlighting the valuable contributions of Open Source initiatives and tools.
