Open source components have become the key building blocks for application development in today's market, allowing companies to assemble their products faster and more efficiently. The increasing adoption of open source components, however, has introduced new security challenges that most teams are not prepared to mitigate.

This review looks at WhiteSource's solution, which helps companies automate the entire process of open source component selection, approval and management, including detection and remediation of security and compliance issues.

Attendees at this webcast will learn how WhiteSource's solution can be easily integrated into their software development lifecycle to:

Speaker Bios

Serge Borso

When it comes to web application security and penetration testing, Serge is among the best possible instructors to learn from due to his experience, accomplishments, and, quite frankly, his personality. Duplicate badges to walk right through security and access a "secure" facility – did that. Dumpster diving for sensitive information outside of a financial institution – to him, that was “lots of fun.” Create an enterprise-wide, measurably successful security program for a billion-dollar company – one of his many accomplishments. All of them, in scope of the engagements. He’s a published author, President of the Denver Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) chapter, founder and CEO of the cyber security consulting firm, SpyderSec, he’s discovered multiple 0-days, written OSINT tools for the community, and is a polished presenter who speaks regularly at national conferences. Truly, an expert in the field. Read more about Serge here.
