Making the Case for Supply Chain Behavior Transparency – Ben Higgins, Ted Driggs – BSW #221
The Biden Cyber Executive Order includes a Software Bill of Materials that is a critical and necessary first measure for protecting the software supply chain. To defend against cyber attacks, such as the ones that impacted SolarWinds and the Colonial Pipeline, organizations also need transparency about the behaviors of the software in their supply chain––how, and with whom, they are engaging in and outside of their networks. Ben Higgins and Ted Driggs of ExtraHop join Security Weekly to explore how behavior transparency can give organizations an advantage by distinguishing between expected noise and indications of compromise.
