DevOps Connect: DevSecOps Day

Tuesday, 24 July | 09.00 - 17.00 hrs | Melati Junior

In the past few years, security integration within the DevOps pipeline has given rise to the idea of DevSecOps. Once seen as the bottleneck and inhibitor of the development and deployment process, security has become an integral part of the movement towards automation and the removal of manual oversight enforcement. As stated in the DevSecOps Manifesto, “We must adapt our ways to ensure data security and privacy issues are not left behind because we were too slow to change.” There are practitioners in the field who are pushing forward with the idea of creating a secure application development pipeline, with security integrated from conception to deployment. In this year’s DevOps Connect: DevSecOps Day at RSA Conference APJ 2018, you’ll hear stories from those practitioners, explaining how they made the cultural transformation from legacy development and deployment processes to integrated systems that include security as a part of the process, not as an overseer or bottleneck to secure application development. This series of first-person talks will give you a perspective on how you and your team can enable faster application development with more rapid deployment to production, while integrating security into your DevOps initiatives. Open to all attendees.
