There’s been a lot of chatter this year around software bills of materials (or SBOMs), in particular why they are important, how the White House executive order around cybersecurity is requiring them, and how they can help improve the open source software supply chain.
But are SBOMs really as impactful as all this talk indicates? Tidelift CEO and co-founder Donald Fischer sits down with Andy Ellis, former Chief Security Officer at Akamai turned startup advisor and investor. They talk about the true consequences of SBOMs; once you generate an SBOM, what are you going to do with it? And they will discuss ways to truly make your software more secure.
Watch this fireside chat.
