GrammaTech to Present Session on Securing the Digital Supply Chain

Embedded Security Expert Walter Capitani to Explain How Software Bills of Materials Can Improve Vehicle Quality, Safety and Security

GrammaTech, a leading provider of application security testing products and software research services, today announced that embedded software security expert Walter Capitani will present a session on software bill of materials (SBOM) at the 11th annual Automotive Cybersecurity Conference in Detroit on March 30.

WHO: Walter Capitani, Director, Technical Product Management for GrammaTech is a recognized expert in embedded and enterprise software security. Walter has led product teams delivering solutions to worldwide markets for safety-critical and secure software development and SaaS application performance. Walter holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo and is an MBA graduate of the Telfer School of Management.
WHAT: To accelerate product releases, developers are using more open source and third-party software which can contain components that introduce security vulnerabilities. Without a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM), parts suppliers and automobile manufacturers lack visibility into their software supply chain to identify and manage critical security risks that can impact vehicle quality, safety and security. In light of increasing software supply chain attacks, the need to better understand what is in the software and what is vulnerable will soon be required. In his session, Walter will explain the growing demand for SBOMs throughout the automotive industry which relies heavily on software to design, build, operate and maintain vehicles. Attendees will learn:

– Approaches to listing ingredients, contacts and versions used in curated software
– The need to harmonize the SBOM process, and establish an industry standard
– SBOM impacts on the automotive industry and potential compliance requirements
– Best practices for physical supply chain management and how SBOMs can be applied in the automotive sector

WHEN: Wednesday, March 30, 2022 from 1:30 pm – 2:10 pm EDT
