PANEL: 11,000 Voices: Experts Shed Light on 4-Year Open Source & AppSec Survey

This session will be educational, interactive, and controversial. And, oh yes, fun. 

We all know that OWASP recently updated its top 10 list to include “(A9) Avoiding the use of open source components with known vulnerabilities.” The guideline was added as OWASP leaders came to understand that 90% of a typical application is composed of open source components. In this session, our panel of senior application security experts will share and discuss the results of a four-year, industry-wide study on application security practices, policies, and trends within the open source development community. To date, over 11,000 professionals have participated in the study. 

Among the surprising survey responses, panelists will kick around: 

 1-in-3 organizations had or suspected an open source breach in the past 12 months 
 Only 16% of participants must prove they are not using components with known vulnerabilities 
 64% don't track changes in open source vulnerability data 

This annual study in 2014 was run during the month of April, right in the wake of the notorious open source Heartbleed bug announcement. Over 3,300 participated in the 2014 study with results directly reflecting the state of organization's preparedness to react to Heartbleed and any future vulnerabilities. 

Objectives and Outcomes: 

 The moderator will engaged the audience by polling them on a survey question prior to its discussion. 
 Panelists will share their perspectives on application security from the 2014 survey results, helping to increase awareness of open source component use, vulnerabilities, and best practices 
 Panelist will also reveal trends recognized across the four-year study to show where application security practices are getting better and where they are getting worse. 
 Attendees will learn from the study results and be encouraged to share them within their own organizations. While the stats may surprise attendees, the most value they will get from the session is from provoking discussions with the data in there own organizations. 

All participants will receive a copy of the survey results to take notes on and then share within their own organizations. 

Our expert panel for this discussion includes: 

 Oleg Gryb, Application Security Architect, Intuit 
 James Wickett, Sr. DevOps Engineer, Mentor Graphics 
 Matt Tesauro, Sr. Product Security Engineer, Rackspace + OWASP Foundation 
 Ryan Berg, Chief Security Officer, Sonatype
