Mitigating Open Source Security VulnerabilitiesCA Veracode's Chris Wysopal on Understanding and Mitigating Open Source Security Issues
Organizations are increasingly incorporating open source code elements into their development to accommodate agile development methodologies and swift go-to-market requirements, but not many are addressing the security concerns that follow this decision, says CA Veracode CTO Chris Wysopal.
In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Wysopal discusses :
- The rising use of open source code in software development;
- The lack of security ownership with open source modules and components;
- The need for incentivizing developers to write secure code.
As CTO at CA Veracode, Wysopal oversees technology strategy and information security. Prior to co-founding Veracode in 2006, he was vice president of research and development at security consultancy @stake, which was acquired by Symantec.
