Open Source Security: How to Lay the Groundwork for a Secure Culture

Open-source components are prevalent in approximately 97% of modern applications and dominate anywhere between 60-80% of their codebases.

This is hardly surprising given how integrating open source accelerates software development and enables organizations to keep up with today’s frantic release pace and standards of constantly supplying new features and improvements.

However, taking into consideration the fact that recent years have seen an upsurge in reported open-source vulnerabilities, whose details and exploits are publicly available, it’s no wonder that organizations are increasingly directing focus towards ensuring that their open-source components are securely integrated into their software.
