OWASP-MSP Upcoming Chapter meeting

When: Monday, September 28th @ 6:00 - 7:45 PM

Title: Why Security Needs DevOps

I might be the only security guy who thinks DevOps is a good idea. I hear all too often about how insecure it is to push code changes directly into production. Wrong! This presentation will first present some foundational concepts: How Vulnerabilities Get Introduced and The Foundational Objectives of DevOps. From there, I will walk through how to build security into a DevOps Environment. The examples used in this presentation will be from Chef but they are very applicable to most DevOps automation tools.

Speaker: Jay Schulman

I'm currently writing at JaySchulman.com about growing your security career and am a Managing Principal at Cigital, Inc and lead our Midwest Practice. I focus at Cigital on application security initiatives.

I help security teams develop their information security programs and capabilities. I help CISOs, CIOs and CFOs understand and react to enterprise security risks and protect against attacks. I want to build information security organizations which enable the business. Information Security shouldn't be about saying 'no' but about finding a way to get to 'yes.'
