Wabi-Sabi Your DevSecOps

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 10:30am to 11:30am

The ability of DevSecOps to produce secure code requires the merging of two very different cultures: AppSec and DevOps. While AppSec lives in a black-and-white world of secure or not secure that would cause “Hello World” to take six months to release, DevOps knows that the reality of software development is actually shades of gray, especially as demands are increasingly placed on development teams to produce more, faster. Brittany Greenfield will teach you how to apply the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which accepts imperfections in the things that we create, to DevSecOps, allowing you to...

Shifting Security Left: The Innovation of DevSecOps

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

DevSecOps uses application security practices that have existed for a while. The innovation of DevSecOps is incorporating security into the daily workflow of the team rather than leaving it to the end, shifting security left by automating aspects of security testing. DevSecOps leverages DevOps practices to make application security a first-class citizen in the practices of modern software development. But that requires a culture change: DevSecOps starts before the code is even written, using techniques like threat modeling and risk analysis to figure out who will attack you and how. Come...

Chaos engineering, failure injection, and similar practices have verified benefits to the resilience of systems and infrastructure. But can they provide similar resilience to teams and people? What are the effects and impacts on the humans involved in the systems? This talk will delve into both positive and negative outcomes for all the groups of people involved, including users, engineers, product owners, and business owners. Using case studies from organizations where chaos engineering has been implemented, Matty Stratton will explore the changes in attitude that these practices create,...

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

The ultimate objective of a DevOps approach is to deliver quality products to your customers as efficiently as possible. DevOps shops that achieved this state point to continuous testing as a key contributor to their success. However, QA and testing have become forgotten along the DevOps journey of many organizations. For groups that have incorporated testing, many have a release cadence that resembles something more like waterfall. The culprit is often the inability to incorporate stable automation into their testing practices. Lee Barnes will discuss how organizations can address...
