Acquisition, Security and the Supply Chain
This event is organized by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University.
From the event website:
When building and acquiring software-reliant systems, the stakes are high and the risks can be daunting. Today’s systems are built with newly developed software, along with legacy, COTS, and open source applications, libraries, and data. Leveraging existing software components can help deliver capability at reduced cost, but what are the risks? How can you know what’s in the software that powers your mission-critical capabilities and how resilient it is to attacks?
When you consider additional factors such as the need to increase the pace of acquisition and the use of multiple providers in different teaming arrangements, it’s clear that new tactics are needed to manage and secure a supply chain that includes software.
The Software and Cyber Solutions Symposium (SCSS) returns in 2019 with a two-day event focusing on acquisition, security, and the supply chain. Join us for a one-day symposium on Wednesday, February 13, free to attendees, that includes two dynamic keynote presenters, Shannon Lietz, DevSecOps Leader and Director at Intuit; and Dr. Will Roper, Assistant Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, U.S. Air Force, who will discuss the risks facing the supply chain in today’s world.
Other topic experts on the SCSS program include
- David Danks, Carnegie Mellon University researcher on moving beyond correlations and predictions to causal knowledge that can guide action, policy, and plans
- Derek Weeks, Vice President at Sonatype and world-renowned researcher on securing software supply chains
- Ceci Albert, Software Engineering Institute expert on how software development processes affect your acquisition strategy
- Grace Lewis, Software Engineering Institute expert who will give a mini-tutorial on emerging technologies for software-reliant systems
Then on February 14, choose from four affordably priced half-day tutorials:
Tutorials are free to U.S. government employees using the promotional code GOVMIL.
Non-government employees can use the promotional code BONUS20 to receive 20% off the standard tutorial fee of $250 if purchasing more than one tutorial.
