Join the Security Symposium, where cybersecurity professionals can learn and network alongside Red Hat and Intel security experts, partners, and industry peers. No one can solve IT security issues alone. Solving problems together as a community is the future of technology.



The Security Symposium is a full-day event with industry experts covering the latest upstream and enterprise security developments. Attendees will network and collaborate with peers and Red Hat engineers to discuss security challenges open source organizations face.



IT business leaders, security professionals, operations professionals, and application developers who are focused on securing their organization’s infrastructure and applications.

Maintaining visibility, control, and security, and ensuring governance and compliance remains paramount. But it becomes more difficult and time consuming in a hybrid infrastructure consisting of physical, virtual, cloud, and container environments. Also, it's becoming more and more challenging for security teams to examine and respond to the growing number of security alerts coming in from the increasing number of security tools in their security operations center.
In this session, we’ll look at how a combination of Red Hat technologies can help you with these challenges for the infrastructure, operations, application, and security operations center across a hybrid environment by automating security and compliance. Specifically, in your hybrid infrastructure, you’ll learn how Red Hat’s management and automation products, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, and OpenSCAP can help you:
  • Perform automated audit scans to quickly detect and automatically remediate security and compliance issues in a controlled way for compliance against regulatory or custom profiles for automated configuration compliance.
  • Automatically provision a security-compliant host.
  • Implement both infrastructure and security as code.
  • Implement consistent and automated patch and configuration management.
  • Proactively identify and remediate security threats at scale with predictive analytics.
  • Centrally manage your hybrid infrastructure for continuous security and monitoring.
  • Build security into your application by implementing DevSecOps at scale using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and several other tools, such as OWASP ZAP, SonarQube, Clair, and more to build a secure CI/CD application pipeline.
  • Automate your security operations center by integrating and orchestrating the activity of multiple classes of security tools and unifying the automated response to security alerts across various security tools.

Recent public breaches highlight the importance of a security strategy that extends beyond the network perimeter. Applications developed and maintained without security in mind present a likely entry point for malicious attackers. Preventive measures should be taken to reduce vulnerabilities that can avoid zero-day attacks.
As organizations adopt containers, an automated approach to security, testing, and application development is needed to increase productivity and reduce risk.
During this session, we’ll discuss how Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform and Red Hat Quay can:
  • Integrate security monitoring software into CI/CD pipelines for containerized applications.
  • Help you understand what's in your containers and where they come from, which is vital to maintain security and quickly remediate workloads.
  • Ensure the validity of images with signing.
  • Enhance open source library security, in true DevSecOps fashion, and establish a security-first mindset for application development.

As you deploy applications and microservices to a Kubernetes based containerized platform, several questions come to mind:
  • How do we deal with micro segmentation?
  • How do we deal with deploying containerized applications in different network zones?
  • How do we deal with security at ingress?
  • How do we deal with security at egress?
  • and more
We will address these common concerns and explain how to address them. In addition, where relevant we will also discuss features provided by open source enterprise ready Kubernetes platform such as OpenShift and how such platforms address these network security aspects for applications. This session assumes that the attendees have basic working knowledge of Kubernetes.

Cybersecurity has traditionally been focused on endpoints and network traffic (both on the Cloud and on premises) inspection with security controls that feed events back to be scored and made actionable with a Security Information Event Management (SIEM) method. While useful for rules-based violations that can be programmed into sensors and malware listeners, there are myriad of threats that can evade these controls or circumvent them altogether. Equally as important, the volume and velocity of data has increased such that it is very difficult to understand what constitutes a risky behavior with a person, software, or system. This is where artificial intelligence can become an equalizer. This presentation will talk about use cases around cyber risk that have been solved with powerful perception, logic, and learning with machine and deep learning precision.
