SolarWinds Attack: An In Depth Look
Wednesday, March 3rd at 11am PT | 2pm ET
Last year one of the largest and most sophisticated attacks was discovered. Since then, thousands of SolarWinds customers have been impacted. This webinar will focus on what we have learned so far and what these types of software supply chain attacks mean for the industry.
We will start with an in depth look at the code and exploits embedded in the SolarWinds software. From here we will explore the risks that exist in software (or hardware) supply chains, and what techniques can be used to help mitigate those risks.
