The DevOps community will remember 2021 as the year when the software bill of materials, or SBOM, graduated from being a “nice to have” to a “must have” when developing and deploying secure software from the cloud. JFrog and AWS have teamed up to make the inventory and reporting of your SBOM a comprehensive, yet simple, exercise.
In a nutshell, SBOMs provide visibility into which components make up a piece of software and detail how it was put together, so it's easy to determine if it contains security and compliance issues. The SBOM has become imperative due to the White House’s cybersecurity executive order from May 2021. Effectively, if you want to sell software to the U.S. federal government, you need to prove you have a secure SBOM. We expect other regulated industries such as utilities, health care and financial services, as well as international, state and local governmental institutions, to also require compliance by demonstrating you are delivering trusted software via an SBOM.
In this webinar, you’ll learn what an SBOM is, how it will benefit you, the misconceptions that exist around it and why it must be a key element of your software development life cycle's (SDLC) security and compliance. We’d also like to invite you to register for a joint JFrog-AWS webinar, where we’ll do a deep dive on SBOMs and share insights and best practices on SBOM creation and usage.
