Open source has come a long way in 30 years – and its success marks a new era for the overall OSS community. But success does not come without potential pitfalls.

For example, there are features such as identity management to monitor who has access to content, and data encryption to safeguard information while it’s at rest or in transit.

This community also monitors and rapidly discloses vulnerabilities and issues, and provides security updates to address them. Read more
