In a world where we stand on the shoulders of giants, where we build systems that are increasingly interconnected, supply chain security is becoming more and more important. As Free and Open Source projects, we believe that we can lead the way for the industry in terms of processes, best practices and technology patterns.
In this open panel, we want to discuss the importance of security in Free and Open Source Software projects. We want to encourage participants of FOSS Backstage to share their questions and insights about topics like supply chain security, security processes, vulnerability disclosure, bug bounties and more.
