Agile DevOps East Serverless Security: Overcome Architectural Security Challenges
Slideshow

Serverless architectures take the idea of microservices to the extreme. To implement secure serverless architectures, you have to understand how to compartmentalize programs at the function level. You also need to factor in security practices: Serverless architectures are susceptible to traditional attacks such as SQL injection and command injection, along with a wide variety of privilege escalation and sensitive data disclosure attacks. Developers must consider what would happen if an attacker attempted to invoke each of their functions directly. What if one of those functions were to become nonresponsive? Designing, implementing, and maintaining serverless architectures dramatically increases the complexity of security. Join Eric Sheridan as he discusses how to implement distributed, secure identity management and entitlement enforcement across 250+ functions.

Agile DevOps East DevSecOps in the Age of Containers
Slideshow

As IT shops look to move their workloads into containers and the cloud, their initial concerns often center around the security implications. Containers do force us to change how we think about securing our application, but they also offer exciting new opportunities. Curtis Yanko will explore the security concerns that come along with containers and take a deep dive into container composability and how modern tooling makes it possible to automate security and compliance concerns across the entire application stack. Curtis will share a project via GitHub that has a reference Jenkins pipeline demonstrating how to automate security and compliance at build time. You will take home ideas for minimizing attack surface, avoiding known bad libraries and frameworks, validating your configuration, and using machine learning to model application behavior.

Agile DevOps The T-Shaped Scrum Team: Get in Shape for Your Future
Slideshow

Today, agile teams are being asked to do more than ever before. The notion of a T-shaped person, created by Tim Brown (CEO of IDEO) in the 1990s, describes a new breed of worker—one who goes beyond the standard, assigned role. Mary Thorn believes that the roles of team members can stretch...
