  • Moderator: Craig Hinkley, CEO, WhiteHat Security

When: 10:00am-11:00am PT
This panel of DevSecOps industry experts will discuss secure DevOps, and what organizations can and should be doing to make security as much a part of the development process as bug testing and QA. Panelists will discuss the pace of DevOps adoption and demands on developers that make the addition of security requirements such a challenge. Attendees will hear guidance on how to successfully evolve DevOps into DevSecOps, and the people, process, and technology transformations that will make this endeavor a “Mission Possible”. Further, attendees will take away an understanding of the current state of DevOps and DevSecOps adoption and actionable ideas to integrate security into an organization’s application development process.

DevSecOps Leaders Panel: Making the Mission Possible

When: 11:00am-11:45am PT
DevSecOps is an approach that fosters the collaboration of DevOps and Security. It’s well known that DevOps has been transformational in creating faster and more efficient software development lifecycles, but what about security? What happens when the code that’s released into production includes vulnerabilities? The DevSecOps Leaders Panel brings together experts who are on the front lines of defining and driving DevSecOps inside their organizations. This thought-provoking session will provide you with real-world examples and best practices to ensure secure continuous delivery, and tips for creating a more collaborative culture between development and security.
