DevSecOps is becoming increasingly relevant with changing requirements and rapid product development becoming the norm. Through this Birds of Feather session we plan to discover various approaches of integrating end to end security in the DevOps cycle.

Who should attend:
1.DevSecOps Enthusiasts, Practitioners, Agile Development Teams,
2.All Developers,QAs, DevOps practitioners
3.Anyone interested in DevSecOps

Key Takeaways for Audience:
1.Understanding of holistic practices of DevSecOps: what role people, process and technology play in DevSecOps
2.Basic building blocks if establishing DevSecOps from scratch(metrics)
3.Ways in which security can catch up with really fast paced DevOps
4.Amount of tooling that is optimal for your pipeline
5.Key aspects of environment security to consider in the age of containerization & cloud


We are looking to bring forth the following issues:

1.Challenges in integrating security in a fast paced DevOps Cycle
2.Current Practices being followed for DevSecOps in Organizations
3.Solving People and Proces challenges around DevSecOps to bring about a security mindset
4.Best Practices to prevent over-tooling in Pipelines
5.Embedding Security in the Pipeline and Automation
6.Culture shift required when transitioning from On-Premise to Containers and Cloud infra


This being a Birds of a Feather session, we expect people to call out questions you may have or challenges faced when choosing, establishing or maintaining the idea of DevSecOps in your organisation. We encourage you to share your experiences or analysis around automation and culture shifts needed for your DevSecOps journey, during this discussion. The general idea is to see what’s new in the DevSecOps space including optimisations and learn from inputs from practitioners solving problems on a daily basis. We will try to keep discussions to pointers and suggestions at a high level.
