Presentation: Bringing DevSecOps to your organization

Hardly a week goes by without news of a security breach. DevSecOps automates and embeds security automation into the DevOps CI/CD pipeline enabling rapid and secure code delivery.


Harden your Kubernetes clusters with Kyverno

By default, nothing is protected in Kubernetes. Securing Pods has always been difficult, but is more challenging with the removal of PodSecurityPolicy (PSP) in Kubernetes v1.25. In this talk, Chip Zoller will demonstrate how Kyverno, a Kubernetes-native policy engine and CNCF incubating project, allows for writing policies and enforcing them via custom admission controllers so dev teams can move faster while reducing the potential for mistakes...from build to run.



Following the two presentations, we will open the floor for Q&A followed by more networking.

5:00 - 6:30
