“Shift RIGHT to Fix Earlier; What Thought-leading SecDevOps Organizations are ACTUALLY Doing”
Vendors and firms do a lot of DevOps ‘in name only’. Those really changing their culture are fundamentally changing their risk management paradigm – from one of proactive governance through security assurance to one of continuous collection of security telemetry and resilient delivery pipelines. What does that mean in practice? This presentation provides a software security framework and conclusions resulting from a survey of twenty luminary organizations practicing what they preach in DevOps culture. It will focus on those security activities and tools DevOps shops _actually_ use and get value from, based on data from the aforementioned survey of twenty luminary organizations. As compared to how traditional shops address vulnerabilities, survey data tends towards real-time telemetry of cloud configuration, container integrity, and user/system behavior. Vulnerabilities themselves tend away from the “OWASP Top 10” and towards account fraud, asset theft and platform abuse. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of, and ideally different perspective on, security tools and activities available to them. More>>
