Secure by design: a proactive approach to open source health and security
1:35 PM - 2:15 PM EST
In this session two of CISA’s leading security experts will share more about the industry-wide effort they are leading to make security a core business requirement in products versus an aftermarket technical feature. They’ll share historical analogies of where this design-first approach has had real impact in other industries, and they’ll cover how they are working directly with industry leaders and the open source community to proactively improve practices in ways that will lead to the security outcomes we need.
