The significance of cybersecurity lies in the fact that cyberattacks have the capacity to cause extensive and pervasive damage. To address this issue, the EU and US governments are creating new laws and regulations (NIS2, Cyber Resilience Act (CRA), etc.) that will affect many organizations and businesses. These regulations mandate essential entities to take necessary steps to manage cybersecurity risks and prevent or reduce the impact of incidents on their services and customers.
The “software bill of materials” (SBOM) has emerged as a key building block in software security and software supply chain risk management. Lacking an up-to-date SBOM can lead to difficulties in determining which applicions are susceptible to attacks. As the software landscape continues to evolve, the importance of maintaining accurate and comprehensive SBOMs cannot be overstated.
