Mitigate Open Source Project Risk
with an Effective Risk Framework

Take charge of Open Source Project Health Risk with the comprehensive and actionable risk framework provided by Bitergia.

Risks that you need to be aware of

Understanding the potential risks associated with open source projects is crucial to safeguarding your organization’s interests. 

Failing to address these project health risks can result in undetected vulnerabilities, which may have severe consequences.

Time Risks

Once attacked, it requires time and effort to identify the vulnerability, close the attack vector, and strengthen systems to prevent future attacks. It requires less time to be pro-active and reduce this risk.

Data Risks

Data loss, including theft of valuable company secrets or compromised customer data. Additionally, attackers may resort to encrypting or deleting critical operational data, causing significant disruptions.

Brand Value Risks

Erosion of brand value and the loss of customer trust. Violations of data privacy can lead to legal consequences, further tarnishing an organization’s reputation.

Revenue Risks

Customers may switch to safer competitors, resulting in a loss of business. Grappling with attackers and restoring operations during downtime can lead to financial strains, and persistent attacks can even drive a company to bankruptcy.

Supercharge Your Open Source Project Risk with Bitergia

Early detection and prediction of project health risks enable companies to take proactive steps that are cheaper and mitigate risks while avoiding these negative impacts. At Bitergia, we have developed a powerful framework that offers distinct advantages for you.

risk evaluation

Simplified Risk Evaluation

At the core of our risk assessment framework you’ll get a single, easily comprehensible score number.

This number encapsulates the risk associated with an open source project, allowing you to gauge its potential impact quickly. 

By eliminating the need for manual data collection, cleaning, and analysis, we empower you to make informed judgments regarding the riskiness of a project without wasting precious time.

Actionable Insights

Go deeper with identifying specific risk categories. 

By splitting the overall risk score into different categories, based on seven risk metrics, you can take targeted actions. 

Whether it involves improving risk factors, discontinuing usage due to unacceptable risk levels, or accepting calculated risks, our framework empowers customers to make informed decisions efficiently. 

Actionable Insights
