Join for Danese's Presentation: Debunking Common Fears about Open Source - July 1st, 2020
How can a regulated-industry business get ready for Open Source? That’s really a multi-layered question because of special requirements created by those regulations. The process of developing Open Source readiness through an internal InnerSource practice has been a focus in FinTech for most of the past decade, thanks to success stories from the likes of Lloyd’s Bank. How does the fact that FinTech companies are subject to strict regulation play into undertaking such a transformation? FINOS’s James McLeod was tweeting with Danese Cooper about a podcast they’d recorded when a follower asked that seemingly simple question, and out of the resulting conversation comes this webinar! We’ll be looking at issues such as PCI-compliance, GDPR-compliance, distributed-ledger systems such as Blockchain, and new regulations surrounding Transfer Pricing and exploring strategies to mitigate risk and what lessons can be learned from innovative new companies.
