Section 4 of Presidential Executive Order 14028 on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity describes new requirements for “Enhancing Software Supply Chain Security for Human Performance.” It calls for more transparency and controls to resist and prevent software supply chain vulnerabilities and malicious attacks. This includes the requirement for the creation of a Software Bill of Material (SBOM) for all applications, and the deployment of automated tools that check for known and potential vulnerabilities and remediate them. Many agencies have not updated their vulnerability management technology or software. Without a blueprint and process of their software supply chain, government agencies and integrators lack visibility and a decision support system to identify exploitive vulnerabilities and the ability to then rectify them.

At this session, you will identify and rectify software supply chain vulnerabilities quickly and efficiently.  With the Executive Order 14028 requiring a minimum standard of care that includes itemizing the Software Bill of Materials, we can begin our journey to better outcomes. Live labs and demonstrations will be available.
