Talk I
Michael McKinnon, Sense of Security

With the rise of the DevOps movement, a chasm has emerged as it becomes evident that super fast and continuous software development and deployment is marginalising “traditional” security expertise, knowledge, and best practice. Security processes need to catch-up with this disruption, and fast – starting with the need for robust monitoring of environments and continuous scanning of vulnerabilities.

Talk II / Demo 
Tim Bradey, Mathew Flannery & Michael Kennedy, Strut Digital

With the term ‘DevSecOps’ being this season marketing buzzword, certain items need to be addressed to bring this fade into realisation within our Agile DevOps automated world.

As in all aspects of security, vigilance, a thirst for knowledge and understanding of the tools is needed otherwise, as we will demonstrate, a platform can be breached and pivoted with relative ease.  We will demonstrate an approach, in an automated deployment, on how to fit within a security framework, recognise a security issue, and rectify it quickly.
