11:00 - 11:30 am | How Developer Culture is Bypassing Traditional Security Methods (Steve Giguere, CSSLP Senior Solution Architect, Aqua Segurity)

'Modern development is experiencing a transformation driven by conflicting agendas.
While Security’s traditional tenets would have a risk averse mandated security practice using tested methods, the monolith to micro-service movement has given a home to containerisation and service orchestration. These new technologies have abstracted critical components of the application infrastructure into the hands of the developers, concealing it from traditional security methods.
Add to mix the growing regulatory initiatives like GDPR and CCPA to provide added urgency and new unknowns to compliance directives.
Amidst the growing buzz for shift-left developer centric security methods we will attempt to clarify a new paradigm harnessing new technologies towards establishing a forward thinking DevSecOps culture.'

3:20 - 4:20 pm | Demo: OpenSource Security Tools for Cloud Native Environments (Steve Giguere, CSSLP Senior Solution Architect, Aqua Segurity)

'Securing production workloads used to be the responsibility of information security specialists. In a DevOps culture, security becomes part of everyone's responsibility as security shifts left.
In this talk, we will look at the cloud native threat landscape and some recent high profile attacks. We will review how security can be embedded at every stage of the CI/CD pipeline, and demonstrate opensource tools that can be used to assess the security posture of your kubernetes cluster and container images.'
