Topic: Can DevSecOps Prevent the Impending Software Apocalypse?

When Marc Andreessen said, “software is eating the world,” he saw business literally reinvented as software. But as software is built faster, becomes more complex and interconnected, and handles more critical functions and data, it’s clear modern software has outstripped our ability to secure it. DevOps has produced stunning results for software speed and quality, but do they translate for security? In this talk, Jeff will present the “Three Ways of Security” – an interpretation of the DevOps classic, “The Phoenix Project” for security. You’ll learn how to get your security work flowing, how to create continuous security feedback, and how to create a culture of security experimentation and learning. 

Bring your questions – Jeff likes a “town hall” style meeting!
