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.
