Software supply chain management: Lessons learned from SolarWinds.
Between the emergence of sophisticated nation-state actors, the rise of ransomware-as-a-service, the increasing attack surface remote work presents, and much more, organizations today contend with more complex risk than ever. A “Secure-by-Design” approach can secure software environments, development processes and products. That approach includes increasing training for employees, adopting zero trust, leveraging Red Teams, and creating a unique triple-build software development process. SolarWinds calls its version of this process the "Next-Generation Build System," and offers it as a model for secure software development that will make supply chain attacks more difficult.
On this episode of CyberWire-X, host Rick Howard, N2K’s CSO, and CyberWire’s Chief Analyst and Senior Fellow, discusses software supply chain lessons learned from the SolarWinds attack of 2020 with Hash Table members Rick Doten, the CISO for Healthcare Enterprises and Centene, Steve Winterfeld, Akamai's Advisory CISO, and Dawn Cappelli, Director of OT-CERT at Dragos, and in the second half of the show, Rick speaks with our episode sponsor, SolarWinds, CISO Tim Brown.
