What's in Your Software? 

Web Conference Overview:

New software enters our security ecosystems daily. When we evaluate the software we look for vulnerabilities in the product. Of course we run functional tests, or break out our favorite scanner, to see if there is embedded malware or dangerous deployment requirements, or even bugs in the program. When done, it gets deployed. What happens after deployment is important, but also gets missed. Of course we will catch new vulnerabilities that are directly related to the product, but what about vulnerabilities in the third party components included in the product? Recently this point was driven home by the numerous vulnerabilities in OpenSSL. Most people usually hear about it when it comes as an update from the vendor. What can you do about it? This panel will leverage the insight from seasoned industry leaders as we hear their thoughts.
