With the White House’s cybersecurity executive order in May 2021, the Software Bill of Materials (aka SBOMs), graduated from being a “nice to have” to a “must-have” global standard when developing and deploying secure software from the cloud? In a nutshell, SBOMs provide visibility into which components make up a piece of software and detail how it was put together, so it's easy to determine if it contains security and compliance issues.

In this talk, we’ll discuss

  • What exactly is an SBOM?
  • Securing your Software Supply Chain
  • Why SBOM must be a key element of your software development life cycle's (SDLC) security and compliance approach
  • The misconceptions that exist around SBOMs
  • Insights and best practices on SBOM creation and usage.
