In this session, we will discuss:

  • The economics and business case for a SASE journey
  • Best practices for implementing Zero Trust within a SASE architecture

This is NOT your typical security conversation. We won’t be talking about how to play better "perimeter defense" at the end of your software supply chain. Instead, we will be talking about how to play better digital “innovation offense” as next-generation software supply chain attacks become more sinister with bad actors actively injecting malicious code into open source projects that feed the global software supply chain.

Join us to discuss:

  • The prevalence of software supply chain attacks with real-world examples such as dependency confusion and how to continuously identify and remediate open source risk, without slowing down innovation
  • Ways to integrate security guardrails directly within your DevOps pipeline
  • The importance of uniting developers, security, and operations on the same team
