I attended a webinar earlier this week to hear Wendy Nather’s thoughts on application security and what companies are doing to monitor open source use in applications. Wendy, Research Director of Security within 451 Research’s Enterprise Security Program, is a veritable quote machine when it comes to getting to the heart of an issue. My favorite of the session is:
“That big corporation (with the 3 or 4 letter acronym) will wait until their software flaw is trending on Twitter before they are going to do something about it.” — Wendy Nather
Mark Troester is doing a series of articles based upon those discussions with Wendy. You can read the series on his blog and listen to the webinar to hear more of the discussion or download the whitepaper to get in depth analysis.
