Ed TALKS Panel: SolariGate – Avoiding Supply Chain Burns

Wilmington, MA – February 18, 2021, – Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessment, announced that its upcoming EdTalks panel will discuss the recent hack of the SolarWinds Orion product that affected over 18,000 SolarWinds customers.

Despite the sophistication and significant damage potential of this hack, some organizations successfully thwarted the attacks despite using the vulnerable SolarWinds Orion product. This Ed TALK will discuss what high-performing organizations did and what can be learned from this broad-reaching attack.

“Supply chain risk is not going away, especially not software updates that fuel the IT-dependent enterprise,” said Ed Adams, CEO of Security and Ed TALKS host. “The SolarWinds hack has sowed doubts about the fidelity and security of 3rd-party tech which puts continued pressure on organizations to have improved incidence detection and response plans.”

Launched in 2020, Ed TALKS features experts from organizations such as Accenture, Red Hat, Microsoft, DHS, Millicom, Alcon,, CITGO, and others. It tackles current cybersecurity topics and offers insight and advice for those tasked with building, operating, and defending IT systems.
