Other talks in this series:

Software Bill of Materials

The Software Bill of Materials (SBoM) is a critical component of open source software development. It is a list of all the components that make up a software product and provides important information about the licenses and dependencies of each component. In our webinars, we'll discuss how to create an SBOM and why it's important for your organization.


We will also discuss tooling in the open source software supply chain. From automated testing to vulnerability scanning, we'll show you the tools that can help you streamline your development process and ensure that your software is secure.

Cyber Resilience Act

We'll also explore the Cyber Resilience Act, which aims to improve the security and resilience of software and services within the European Union. This Act could be of particular importance for organizations that use open source software in their products.
