About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts! 

We're happy to announce the March edition of the New York Kubernetes Meetup! This month, we'll be focusing on security. 

Michael Cherny from Aqua will speak to the security best practices for a Kubernetes Deployment - from development, through build, ship, networking and run time controls.

Mark Stemm from Sysdig will speak to securing containers on Kubernetes the Sysdig way - using the open-source tool Falco for a behavioral security approach which differs from more traditional image scanning approaches. 

Lastly, we'll have Dino from Capsule8 demo some live security attacks against containers running in Kubernetes deployments to illustrate what really needs to be defended against (hint: it isn't always what you may think!).
