Presentation: Help, my Security Officer is Allergic to DevOps

Track: Privacy & Security - Rebuilding Trust / Time: Wednesday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: Elizabeth Windsor

DevOps and Security: is it a match made in heaven or the forced marriage from Hell? DevOps introduces a number of concepts that bring back memories to the eighties with many Security Officers when engineers changed directly in PROD and we did not have any DTAP process....'. As a result, it forced them to have an instant negative reaction. It is too bad that Dev en Ops are not a happy couple, because they are far less incompatible than it seems at a first glance. In this presentation Frank, a hardcore security officer himself, will explain how he became a convinced DevOps-supporter. He truly believes that DevOps can provide huge opportunities, once you have overcome the first resistance.

"Help, my Security Officer is allergic to DevOps" is a talk that will help you understand and possibly counter the objections of the Security tribe against DevOps. Its aim is to give you the starting points to begin or continue your DevOps journey together with your Security Officer and thereby start making a difference.
