Open source components help developers build and deploy applications faster, but with increased speed comes greater risk. Maria Loughlin of Veracode describes how to reduce those risks through several steps, including component inventories and developer education.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Breach Prevention Summit in Washington, Loughlin discusses:
- How open source and third party components are changing the threat landscape;
- Strategies for mitigating open source component risk;
- Getting developers to keep code libraries current.
