In today's tech landscape, securing open-source software (OSS) is crucial due to rising supply chain vulnerabilities, particularly in AI and for budget-conscious organizations that value OSS for its flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and innovation. However, if not carefully managed, OSS also poses significant security challenges and risks to software supply chains. A comprehensive strategy for identifying and securely integrating OSS components, supported by strong security frameworks and processes, is vital for mitigating these risks. Continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) platforms play a key role by enhancing development efficiency and embedding security measures into the lifecycle, enabling early detection, and fixing of vulnerabilities to protect the software supply chain.

To delve deeper into these critical issues and explore effective strategies for securing OSS, we invite you to attend an upcoming webinar co-chaired by ICIT and Cloudbees in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This event will provide a platform for leaders and professionals to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by OSS in today's innovation-driven world. Join us to empower yourself with the knowledge and tools needed to make informed decisions and enhance the security of your software infrastructure.
