We’ve spent a long time waiting for a hero to come along and rescue us from the cybersecurity baddies that seem to hold more power than we thought possible, even 10 years ago. We’re waiting for more cybersecurity professionals to get on board, but it’s a gap we cannot close. We’re waiting for the silver bullet tooling solution that promises to automate us away from growing risk, but it does not and is very unlikely to exist. We’re waiting for our Luke Skywalker to help us fight the Dark Side.
As it turns out, help (and hope) is on the way, in the form of The Open Source Software Security Mobilization Plan.
