As new vulnerabilities are discovered on a daily basis, DevOps teams must integrate security into the early stages of the development lifecycle and be vigilant about what elements are incorporated into their applications.
The Log4J vulnerability has dominated the headlines since it was discovered in December and it continues to send shock waves through the industry. Any application that uses Log4J is subject to the identified family of attacks known as Log4Shell.
Many tech companies have been impacted by the Log4J vulnerability and it has become a major concern for DevOps teams.
On March 1, cybersecurity experts from Snyk will come together at Know Your Code: Open Source and Supply Chain Summit to discuss future strategies for maintaining security throughout your software supply chain and the security of open source packages.
The experts will lead a live panel based on the learnings from the Log4Shell vulnerability and several real-world remediation approaches as well as other fixes outside of code. The panel features demos on container and IaC hacks and Java-based game hacks.
The sessions explore the software supply chain as an attack vector, how developers are targeted as a vehicle for malware distribution, how immensely we depend on open-source maintainers to release timely security fixes and how the race to the cloud creates new security concerns for developers to cope with, as computing resources turn into infrastructure as code.
