Is Your Company Ready for The Future of Work?

The unexpected arrival of the pandemic in 2020 forced every organization to assemble a patchwork of unplanned workforce responses as many moved to remote-work solutions. Now, every firm faces difficult decisions around what the future of the office — and the future of work — will be. It is now time for organizations to decide where employees can or will work from in the future.

In this environment, leaders must make a series of choices for how to best support their workforce with infrastructure that promotes employee safety, connects a distributed workforce, and fuels distanced collaboration. Document management (DM) strategies are a key enabler the future of work, but organizations must act to ensure these strategies support their employees’ current and future needs.

Thinking Upstream About White House Cybersecurity Order 14028

A few months ago, the U.S. White House released cybersecurity executive order 14028, an attempt by the United States government to use its purchasing power to create positive changes to the way cybersecurity is addressed around the world.

Recent high profile breaches like the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack or the SolarWinds software supply chain attack have shown that our cybersecurity defenses are woefully inadequate. This executive order forces a higher standard of cybersecurity for any organization selling software to the federal government, which in turn makes it the de facto global standard for all software in the future.

Tidelift CEO and co-founder Donald Fischer shares his perspective on how the cybersecurity executive order impacts software supply chain security. He’ll brief attendees on the key issues addressed by the executive order, including software bill of materials (SBOM), supply chain security, and provenance requirements. He’ll outline the gaps that most organizations will need to close in order to stay in compliance. And he’ll share a proactive approach to addressing open source software supply chain health and security upstream.

If you want to ensure your organization is fully prepared for the coming changes, you won’t want to miss this briefing.

Cooking with Tidelift

When cooking for friends or family, many of us go out of the way to seek the freshest, tastiest ingredients possible. You may have favorite producers at the local farmers market, or brands from the grocery that you've come to know and trust. But when choosing the ingredients that make up our open source applications, we often bring in new libraries without any guarantees that they are safe and well maintained.

We wanted to distill the idea of managing open source down to something so simple, you could explain it to a child, so that’s why we wrote a children’s book about enterprise open source software management. Yes, we just used the phrases “children’s book” and “enterprise open source software” in the same sentence.

We call it Cooking with Tidelift, and it will show you how we can help you create catalogs of known-good, proactively maintained open source components to ensure your apps are as safe and healthy as they can be.
