As the cyber threat landscape evolves and external dependencies grow more complex, managing risk in the Internet of Things (IoT) supply chain must focus on the entire lifecycle. The internet is used by most businesses, cloud providers, schools and in our homes, so understanding how to protect your company data as well as your personal information is of critical importance. IoT is contributing to a massive proliferation of a variety of types of software-reliant, connected devices throughout critical infrastructure sectors. With IoT increasingly dependent upon third-party software of unknown provenance and pedigree, software composition analysis and other forms of testing are needed to determine 'fitness for use' and trustworthiness. Application vulnerability management should leverage automated tools for detecting weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and exploits as well as implementing security and privacy processes to detect malware, trojan viruses, worms or phishing attacks.
Addressing supply chain dependencies enables enterprises to harden their attack surface by: comprehensively identifying exploit targets; understanding how assets are attacked and providing more responsive mitigations. Security automation tools and services, and testing and certification programs now provide means upon which organizations can use to reduce risk exposures attributable to exploitable software in IoT devices.
Additionally, Martin Jones will join Joe in providing tool demonstrations for Coverity, Defensics, Seeker, Protecode SC and BlackDuck to address means for identifying and mitigation software weaknesses and vulnerabilities, as well as open-source software licensing issues.
Attendees will learn:
How external dependencies create risks throughout the entire IoT/software supply chain;
How software composition, static code analysis, fuzzing, and other forms of testing can be used to determine weaknesses and vulnerabilities that represent vectors for attack and exploitation;
How testing can support procurement and enterprise risk management to reduce risk exposures attributable to exploitable software in IoT devices.
