The event will be Thursday, February 28, at 9:00 am PST / 10:00 am MST / 11:00 am CST / 12 noon EST.

Software is increasingly incorporated into products released into the market, and more companies are releasing mobile applications every day. As the percentage of open source content in use rises, the legal and security risks accompanying such use needs to be actively managed. During this webinar, presenters will provide background information and actionable advice that will assist in handling open source.

Among other insights, presenters will discuss the following:

• Assessing license compliance and compatibility
• Leveraging tools to monitor and assess risks associated with software deals and open source software incorporated into a company’s code
• Creating programs and policies to effectively manage a company’s incorporation of open source into its code
• External web service call-out or API identification and management of associated obligations, risks, and privacy concerns
