DevOps and Continuous Security on AWS

Organizations across the globe are embracing DevOps to deliver quality products at speed and reduced cost. To accelerate the adoption, Organizations are relying on out of the box DevOps solutions. A typical DevOps implementation consists of many moving parts and often it is necessary to find set of tools that naturally integrate, thus reducing the overall implementation time and effort. Amazon Web Service (AWS) offers a mature set of tool chain across the DevOps spectrum. AWS provides these DevOps tools as services and comes with immense benefits such as ease of implementation, out of the box solutions, industry standard implementation, minimal upfront cost & pay as you go models etc. In this talk, we will explore various aspects of implementing DevOps on a AWS platform and map the DevOps ask with AWS tools/services.

While DevOps adoption is becoming the new normal, moving to a truly Continuous Delivery is still a distant dream for many Organizations. The threat of impending security lapse prevents organization move to a truly Continuous Delivery method, where code goes to production through automated process. Continuous security is the key here. AWS offers multiple tools, controls and check points to ensure that security is integrated so that DevOps transforms to DevSecOps.
