In IT, compliance and security go hand in hand, and organizations need to pay close attention to both — for all software, but particularly for open source software. Defining and maintaining compliance can be complex, and may involve internal policies and/or external regulations around technical support and tracking versions, vulnerabilities, and licenses.

However, the costs of non-compliance are steep — from release delays and supply chain impacts to failed audits and reputational or financial damage from cyberattacks. It’s critical for IT, operations, and software development leaders to understand the role compliance plays within the landscape of open source and develop best practices to stay compliant.
