Open Source Software and Security

Open Source Software and Security

To follow up on the popular and engaging Armchair Discussion on open source software in October 2017, the School is pleased to offer another session on this timely and important topic. 

The previous session generated many questions about the security of open source software, the myths surrounding their use and the release of open source code. With the Government of Canada moving towards open standards for data and communications, these are significant issues in the information technology landscape.

Join us to hear from public service experts who will address your questions, share their experience and offer their recommendations on how to debunk the cybersecurity myths related to open source software.
