As a cybersecurity consulting company, we at Sakura Sky know that software supply chain attacks have become increasingly common in recent years, with high-profile incidents such as the SolarWinds hack and the Codecov breach making headlines around the world.
In a software supply chain attack, attackers target the software development and distribution process, compromising software vendors’ systems to insert malicious code into the software that is then distributed to unsuspecting users.
To prevent such attacks, organizations need to implement a range of security measures, and we can be an invaluable partner in this effort.
Secure the software development process
We can help our customers establish secure software development practices by providing guidance on secure coding practices, conducting code reviews, and implementing automated testing. We can also provide training and education for developers to ensure that they understand and follow these guidelines. By doing so, organizations can reduce the risk of vulnerabilities being introduced into the software development process that could be exploited by attackers.
Secure the build system
We can assist our customers in implementing secure build systems by conducting security assessments, identifying vulnerabilities, and recommending best practices. We can also help with the deployment and management of secure build systems. This can help to ensure that the software build process is secure, and that attackers are unable to compromise the software distribution process.
Use software signing
Software signing is a technique that uses digital signatures to verify the authenticity of the software. We can assist our customers in implementing software signing by providing guidance on the use of digital signatures and assisting with the deployment of software signing solutions. By using software signing, organizations can ensure that the software they distribute has not been tampered with by attackers.
Monitor third-party components
We can assist our customers in monitoring the security of third-party components by conducting vulnerability assessments, monitoring alerts, and providing recommendations for mitigating any vulnerabilities that are discovered. This is particularly important, as attackers often target third-party components to gain access to the software supply chain.
Conduct regular security assessments
We can conduct regular security assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities and threats in the software supply chain. These assessments can be used to prioritize remediation efforts and improve the overall security posture of the organization. By conducting regular security assessments, organizations can ensure that they are aware of any vulnerabilities or threats that may exist in their software supply chain and take proactive measures to address them.
