--------- The Talks ---------

Matt Jarvis - Continuous Security - Building Security into your Pipelines

In the world of continuous delivery and cloud native, the boundaries between what is our application and what constitutes infrastructure is becoming increasingly blurred. Our workloads, the containers they ship in, and our platform configuration is now often developed and deployed by the same teams, and development velocity is the key metric to success. This presents us with a challenge which the previous models of security as a final external gatekeeper step cannot keep up with. To ensure our apps and platforms are secure, we need to integrate security at all stages of our pipelines and ensure that our developers and engineering teams have tools and data which enable them to make decisions about security on an ongoing basis. In this session I will talk through the problem space, look at the kinds of security issues we need to consider, and look at where the integration points are to build in security as part of our CI/CD process.


Rainer Stropek - Cloud Security Beyond Technology – Organizational Challenges On The Way to Cloud Native

Many companies focus on technological questions when transitioning from traditional IT infrastructure to cloud computing. Yet, not all practices, processes, and policies fit to cloud-related concepts like DevOps, DevSecOps, PaaS and serverless, zero trust networking etc. In this session, Rainer Stropek shares his views on organizational aspects that are crucial for larger organizations that want to benefit from cloud-native software development in hyperscale public cloud environments.
