Virtual Event: NIST Software & Supply Chain Assurance Virtual Forum
April 7, 2021, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Aaron Cooper, Vice President, Global Policy, BSA | The Software Alliance
BSA's Aaron Cooper speaks on a panel, “Achieving a Trustworthy Software Cyber Engine for our Economy,” at NIST’s Software & Supply Chain Assurance Forum.
Software and its supply chain have become prime targets of adversaries looking to disrupt or steal. With more and more of our society leveraging software-enabled technologies and managing distributed capabilities across geographically separated locations, the possible impacts of insecure software are too big to ignore. Understanding what trustworthy software systems look like and how others can gain assurance about them is motivating international standards, and best practices, frameworks, and government regulations that seek to address these problems. This panel will discuss these motivating forces, the efforts underway, and the challenges remaining.
