Recent supply chain attacks, along with the U.S. Executive Order on Cybersecurity, have raised the priority of software security. At the same time, security and compliance teams may feel that security risk is a bit out of control given the rapid evolution of DevOps. With all eyes on secure coding, how do you ensure proper depth and breadth of app sec testing? How do you meet development deadlines without slowing down for security? This talk will address how to best approach modern software security by automating your CI pipeline for simplicity, visibility, and control.
You will learn:

  • What's changed that makes
  • Redefining the DevSecOps approach to meet these new challenges
  • 5 key requirements to achieve DevSecOps 2.0
