DevSecOps is a practice. Make it visible

Security should be embedded in DevOps by default, but for many organizations, it is not. Enter “DevSecOps”. What is DevSecOps? It is a practice to build more secure applications, secure the software factory, and secure cloud workloads. Because it is a practice it needs to be visible. In this session hear about the ways tech-enabled enterprises approach a DevSecOps practice, how they make it visible, and how Splunk + JFrog can accelerate your journey.

Understanding and tracking the impact of your ever-changing k8s deployments

As developers we’re not always fully aware of security implications stipulated from changes to our code whether these are done in the CI, CD or an artifact database. It is always challenging to predict the impact of a changed 3rd party library, a security context or an RBAC permission, accessing a different network to the same resource or even using an API in a different way than we used to. Understanding the impact immediately and being able to make a change without disrupting the pipeline is therefore an important requirement. This session will present best practices to cope with these day to day changes and will propose a set of tools to address them cohesively.
