Please join us and select industry practitioners to learn about leading practices for design and execution of a successful software supply chain security programme.

The number of software supply chain security (SSCS) attacks has increased exponentially due to:

  • Heavy reliance on open-source code and third-party software components vs Internal Build Code when building a software product
  • Multiple vulnerable points throughout the supply chain lifecycle
  • Ability to target multiple customers by exploiting vulnerability in a component for one software product makes software supply chain attacks inherently more lucrative.

Regulatory scrutiny on SSCS has been steadily rising and most organisations/ software product suppliers are not adequately mature to effectively manage software supply chain attacks.

Topics for discussion:

  1. Industry trends and regulatory landscape (e.g., SBOM requirements, EO 14028, DHS Risk Management Act 2021, FDA, NIS 2 Directive, EU Cyber Resiliency Act etc.)
  2. SSCS programme governance
  3. Generating and maintaining SBOM
  4. Adopting risk management strategy to assess and manage SSCS lifecycle including contracting
  5. Building a SSCS risk aware culture
  6. Upcoming developments such as adopting SBOM, enhancing container security, evolving industry standards, composable software application architecture, integrating supply chain services, etc.
