Many of the concepts discussed in software supply chain security come out of old-fashioned material goods supply chains. "Chain" is a broken metaphor for security. The software supply "web" would be more appropriate. This session will present and debate alternative models developers should be using from other industries, which is a mix of standards, some testing, and some enforcement.

Each year at RSA Conference, SANS provides the authoritative briefing on the most dangerous new attack techniques in use today, what's coming next, and what organizations can do to prepare. This session gives organizations a chance to prioritize upcoming attack vectors and get ahead of them.


Join SANS instructors as they participate in exciting discussions about the biggest topics in cybersecurity, which will be happening live from the SANS booth #3416 in the South Hall throughout the conference. Stop by the booth to join the conversation or tune in online.
