Topic: Who is watching the code? Source Code Repo Anti-Tampering
Roughly one-third of US intellectual property value is the form of software, a third is in patents and other copyrighted materials, and the balance is in trade secrets. (Source: http://www.ipnav.com). Every company depends on proprietary software for competitive advantage, to improve customer service, to maximize profits, etc. Despite this, protection of code residing in source code repositories (repos) is surprisingly lax as evidenced by attacks initiated by nation states and malicious insiders to name just two attack vectors. In this presentation Joe will discuss the threats to repos, case studies of recent attacks and solutions specific to the malicious insider threat.
