About OSS Security Meetup – Importance of OSS Security

The IT systems that support modern society are widely dependent on OSS. It is estimated that 70% to 90% of the software included in a company’s products and services is OSS.Organizations often use OSS to improve development speed and quality and aim for technological innovation. By adopting OSS, the benefits of OSS can be shared across industries, but if vulnerabilities are found, the impact will be widespread. Ensuring OSS security is of the utmost importance, and for that purpose, cooperative efforts across countries and organizations are required.

The First Meetup Takeaway

The first ever OSS Security Meetup in Japan was held on February 28th in Tokyo Cybozu’s conference room and virtual. With over 120 registrations, all tickets were sold out. Many tech people from around the industry gathered together to learn about OSS Security and key initiatives, and network with the community with the same purpose. It was a precious opportunity to learn about the global trends in Japanese language. All presentation slides and recordings are available and anyone can access.
