Preview of LF Study on SBOM Readiness by Steve Hendrick


The State of Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) and Cybersecurity Readiness, produced in partnership with SPDX, OpenChain, and OpenSSF, reports on the extent of organizational SBOM readiness and adoption and its significance to improving cybersecurity throughout the open source ecosystem. The study comes on the heels of the US Administration’s Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, and the disclosure of the most recent and far-reaching log4j security vulnerability. Its timing coincides with increasing recognition across the globe of the importance of identifying software components and helping accelerate widespread implementation of cybersecurity best practices to mitigate the impact of software vulnerabilities. 


Steve Hendrick, who authored the SBOM readiness report, is a Vice President of research for the Linux Foundation and well traveled in application development and deployment software.  Prior to his current role at the Linux Foundation, Steve spent 30 years as an industry analyst working for IDC, ESG, and EMA driving application development and deployment research. Steve has authored over 1,000 research reports and served as primary investigator on over 100 surveys.
