Presented by: Naomi Buckwalter
Why does it seem that DevOps and Security are always at odds with each other? Why does Security have such a bad reputation among developers? In this talk, “Six Things DevOps Wants from InfoSec”, you’ll learn that developers actually WANT to work with Security – they care about writing secure code! But we as security professionals need to understand that developers don’t want another “Big Brother” telling them what to do – they need an active and supportive partner in the delivery process. This talk will showcase six things that every DevOps teams want from their InfoSec teams. Everyone is on the same team, after all. Let’s help DevOps accomplish their goal to release the best – and most secure – code possible.
