Background: Software is everywhere these days and most of it contains some amount of open source components. This brings inherited risk into the software we use and the software we create. Most organizations have some recognition of this but lack the hard numbers to help them truly understand the risk they are accepting when they use or create software that contains third party components.

Learning Objectives: 
- A look at solid numbers behind open source risks in modern software based on studies of over 1200 code bases
  • Security risks from vulnerabilities in the code
  • Legal risks from licensing issues
  • Operational risk
- Anybody involved in creation of software or managing software use in organizations needs to understand the risks involved in using open source software
