The $40 billion software supply chain storm is upon us, and senior leaders find themselves navigating a turbulent sea of hype and confusion. This whitepaper serves as a compass, drawing from the pioneering experiences of the North American Energy Software Assurance Database (NAESAD) Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) initiative.

Within its pages, leaders will:

  1. Explore thirteen (13) practical SBOM use cases, each paired with tailored implementation strategies and benefits across ten (10) functional enterprise departments.
  2. Uncover a compelling business case for SBOM investments, revealing a potential $4 million in annual savings, alongside guidelines for favorable accounting treatment and financial incentives.
  3. Learn to describe the alignment between SBOM investments, national cybersecurity strategy, regulatory drivers, and industry best practices.

As our digital ecosystem becomes increasingly susceptible to sophisticated threats, SBOMs stand as a lighthouse, aligning with national priorities, satisfying regulatory compliance, and offering an attractive financial business case.
