Day in a Life of the DevSecOps Professional

August 27, 20203:00 PM - 4:30 PM (GMT+02:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris

This is a live event, with interactive discussions and technical demos with cyber-security experts from RedHat, Snyk and Portshift discussing the modern role of DevSecOps. They'll address the challenges teams face in their daily activities to ensure secure development, testing and deployment of containerized applications in OpenShift clusters.

The speakers and attendees together will explore a DevSecOps journey from the beginning, starting early in development with the tools needed to secure development at this stage. We’ll continue with a look at the automated pipelines of continuous integrations (CI) and deployments (CD), where images are built and turned into containers. We’ll explore how these containers are being deployed in OpenShift clusters and the security best practices required to reduce the risk potential and malicious manipulation potential.
