GrammaTech to Present Session on Securing the Digital Supply Chain at Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit 2023

Software reliability expert Curtis Yanko will discuss how manufacturers and suppliers can use a software bill of materials (SBOM) for defect free vehicles

BETHESDA, Md.--()--GrammaTech, a leading provider of application security testing products and software research services, today announced that DevSecOps expert Curtis Yanko will present a session on Software Bill of Materials and Securing the Automotive Digital Supply Chain at Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit 2023 in Ann Arbor on March 22nd.



Curtis Yanko, Principal Solutions Architect for GrammaTech helps customers address software supply chain risk. He has more than two decades of experience working with application development and delivery teams to deploy software reliably and repeatedly. Curtis is an expert in ALM, Agile, CI/CD and managing third party dependencies as part of the SDLC, and managed the first DevOps team at a Fortune 100 insurance company.






Today’s smarter, connected vehicles are literally being driven by software, sensory devices, and electronic control units (ECUs). And with that comes greater demands for functional safety, compliance, and ensuring the software placed into these automotive computer systems is defect free. Yet we know there’s increasing reliance on third-party and open source software which often lacks any validation or provenance, hence introduces risk. So, how is the industry responding to this software supply chain risk? One way to tackle this problem is by generating a SBOM or software bill of materials within the software factory, i.e., during the development process. The use of SBOMs also elevates the discussion to “What’s Next?” In this session attendees will learn:

  • How to automate SBOM creation
  • How to manage SBOMs
  • What’s required to store and archive SBOMs
  • How do you monitor for changes in SBOMs
  • How to share and communicate information contained in SBOMs



Software Bill of Materials and Securing the Automotive Digital Supply Chain, March 22, 2023 from 10:40 - 11:20 AM local time.
