Every company has a software supply chain.

A company builds its products from custom code, paid APIs, paid proprietary binaries, and open source software libraries. As the types of software available have increased, the management of the software supply chain has become complex.

Large software companies have always needed to ensure the security of their software. With the growing variety of open source licenses, these companies also have to deal with an increased set of legal complexities. If an open source project is used in a way that violates an open source license, the company is subject to legal risk.

FOSSA is a company that focuses on automating the management of open source compliance and security. Kevin Wang is the CEO of FOSSA, and he joins the show to discuss the modern issues of software licensing and his experience building a company.
