Acquisition, Security, and the Supply Chain

Arlington, VA
February 13-14, 2019

When building and acquiring software-reliant systems, the stakes are high and the risks can be daunting. Today’s systems are built with newly developed software, along with legacy, COTS, and open source applications, libraries, and data. Leveraging existing software components can help deliver capability at reduced cost, but what are the risks? How can you know what’s in the software that powers your mission-critical capabilities and how resilient it is to attacks?

The challenges multiply when you consider factors such as the increasing pace of acquisition and the use of multiple providers and teaming arrangements. This symposium included sessions that explored these topics. Besides expert speakers from the Software Engineering Institute, it included keynotes from the acquisition and development communities who provided senior-leader perspectives on these challenges, the status of the practice, and emerging needs.
