I believe I know something about you and your current situation...
I know you're working with embedded Linux products, either as a developer, a product or program manager, a QA engineer, or an engineering director.
Currently, you're focused on controlling and minimizing the risk posed to your embedded devices by a multitude of factors, including common vulnerabilities and exposures or CVEs.
So, let me ask you a question...
Would you be ecstatic if you could slash the time spent maintaining CVE lists by hand?
Because if you could do that, ultimately, that would mean you would feel more confident that existing threats are handled and that you have a process for dealing with any future open source software risks! (Which would be amazing!)
Unfortunately, I also get the sense that there are some roadblocks for you here, including figuring out exactly how to create a repeatable and sustainable security process in your organization, and how a Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs) fits into the bigger picture without wasting time or resources.
Are you also really frustrated by the fact that it takes too long to get a solid answer about specific vulnerabilities, how to generate an accurate SBOM, or even what you do once you have an SBOM?
Do you constantly ask yourself, "how do I address all the CVEs that I found from my software?"
One last question...
Do you ever find yourself thinking that you can't communicate the true cost of not being able to deal with these risks?
I know I did!
And finally, to make matters even worse, sometimes (no matter what you do), it just plain feels like noisy CVE tools are actively going out of their way to your success with securing your device and managing your SBOMs and vulnerabilities.
Well, let me tell you, I know exactly how you feel because I've been there myself... more than once!
When all is said and done, my guess is you really just want to own a secure product that is easy to maintain without serious concerns for open source software vulnerabilities. Yes?
If this sounds at all like you, then I'd like to invite you to join this 4-day crash course.
