In Community We Trust: Open Source Software and Supply Chain Security

Chris Wright, Senior Vice President & Chief Technology Officer

Monday, September 27, 2021  |  10:05 a.m.

Open source software is running inside nearly all companies today—whether CIOs know it or not. But can they trust that it’s secure? During this session, Chris will share his thoughts on current security risks in open source software and the value of a trusted software supply chain. He’ll also provide examples of how Red Hat is meeting its customers’ demands for greater security, compliance, privacy and transparency with open source software.

Then, check out Open Jam for information on how to get involved with open source game jams and build games of your own.


At Red Hat, opportunities are open.

Red Hat is the leading provider of enterprise open source solutions. We believe that open source pushes the boundaries of what’s possible. We collaborate and share ideas, create inclusive communities, and welcome diverse perspectives. It’s what makes us who we are.

Join us for an Operate First Webinar

Tuesday, October 5 | 9:00 a.m.

Have you noticed how public cloud has shifted the value from open source dev to proprietary ops? Who today can run open source solutions at web scale with only code and documentation from the upstream projects?

Join community members for a talk and demo of the Operate First vision and community cloud. We’ll take you on a ride through the user-facing onboarding processes and the back office, where SRE’s perform state-of-the-art DevOps through GitOps and bot automation. See how Kubernetes, ArgoCD, and Prometheus are used to deploy and operate workloads in the Operate First community cloud.
