The security of software used by organisations is an ever-increasing risk for organisations around the world. In the last three years, there has been a 742% global average annual increase in observed software supply chain attacks. This includes tens of thousands of smaller-scale incidents, and well-known attacks such as those against SolarWinds (2020), or recent disruption to our National Health Service’s IT Systems (2022).
In order to better understand the nature of software risks to UK organisations, and where government should focus on mitigating them, the new Department for Science, Innovation and Technology published a call for views on software resilience and security. Published on 6 February, this call for views looks at software risks across the breadth of the software lifecycle.
Watch now as DSIT shares their experiences and thoughts on software security and resilience and to help inform and steer the direction the government should take in this area.
