About this event

We will open the door at 6:00
Have drinks and pizza until 6:30, then the talk will start.

Has RBAC, Network Policy, or Pod Security Policies not been enough to solve your policy needs? Policy is essential to meeting governance and legal requirements. As enterprise adoption occurs of Cloud Native technologies, policy-based control has become vital to meet these needs.

In this session, we will review Open Policy Agent capabilities and use cases for extending Kubernetes policy and governance. We will also demonstrate use cases that can can be used to implement policy across Kubernetes clusters.

After attending this talk, you will leave with understanding why policy driven security is needed for governing your Kubernetes clusters . You will also learn about actionable real world use cases and how to get started writing OPA policies.

This will be a demo heavy session based on real word use cases!
