Alyssa Miller From Snyk on the State of Open Source Security

by | Tue 14 Jul 2020

Open Source has seen enormous growth in recent years, and this has shone the light on the security of the many different components in open source systems such as NPM, Linux, Kubernetes, Docker, and Debian. How do we ensure that the rapidly growing library of open source, which is often bundled into stacks, is safe and secure?

To better understand this, Snyk recently published their State Of Open Source Security Report which provides some incredible insight into the recent trends and patterns in open source security.

I read the report and had approximately one billion questions, so I was thrilled to bring Alyssa Miller, Application Security Advocate at Snyk, to come on Conversations With Bacon to talk through some of these questions.

If you are interested in open source, the changing trends and patterns in security, and how we continue to build a safe and secure open source ecosystem, you should definitely give this show a listen.
