An Imminent Need to Secure the Federal Software Supply Chain

The security landscape for the US Government is changing, it's time to shift left. Government agencies are increasingly embracing the concept of DevOps with the DoD paving the way — The walls between IT operations and developers are torn down, wasteful practices ripped out, and collaboration at scale rewarded. Enter open source development practices powering DevOps, and more and more, powering federal software supply chains. These free and readily available open source components allow agencies to save time and money, and in many cases improve quality.


In today’s world, understanding what’s in your supply chain is critical to national security. Not all components are created equal. Open source and DevOps can give the federal government the power to keep up with the commercial industry, but not without proper controls. We’re in the middle of a paradigm shift in how the federal government develops software and addresses the security issues and there is an imminent need to secure the federal software supply chain.


Join this webinar to learn more about:

  • The current state of DevSecOps across the DoD and Federal Government
  • Why the time is now to shift left
