Implementing DevOps and Continuous Delivery should speed up your software delivery. But in practice the results can be disappointing because teams still spend a lot of time on manual work that is often related to risk & security. Especially in a highly regulated world, like the Financial sector, rules and regulations can be perceived as a huge burden. 


In this talk I will discuss how this can be turned around by doing shift-left on security. Risk&Security: From burden to benefit.

Speaker: Taco Bakker

Team Manager @ING_news (ING Bank)

Taco Bakker studied Computer Science at the University of Amsterdam. After his graduation he started as an IT engineer, but quickly became a Project Manager for large IT projects. He discovered first-hand the challenges of the traditional IT approaches such as Prince2. 

He joined ING to become a team manager for both development and operations departments. In this role he spent a lot of time closing the gap between OPS and DEV. About 8 years ago he became a LEAN six sigma black belt and started to improve the traditional IT way of working. He quickly adopted Agile Scrum, helped to implement DevOps within ING and co-founded the ING IT Academy. Today he and his team are implementing the standard continuous delivery pipeline for ING worldwide.
