Supply Chain Interviews

What: We are looking for interview partners from industry and related areas to gain deeper insights into the use of open source components.

Who: We are a group of cyber security & privacy researchers from the George Washington University and the German CISPA Helmholtz-Center for Information Security.

Why: As part of the supply chain, a single compromised open source component threatens the whole software stack. We are interested in how industry stakeholders deal with these challenges and how we can better support them.
