SecDevOps: the new black of IT

Much has been written about the role of Security in a DevOps culture. Almost universally the thought is that DevOps can help improve security.




An old friend of mine from the security world Andrew Storms and I will discuss this and other issues around DevOps and security on June 11th at 1pm eastern time, 10am pacific time on a webinar entitled “SecDevOps: the new black of IT“.

Andrew is the Sr. Director of DevOps at CloudPassage. Prior to that Andrew headed up the security research team at nCircle. He is oft cited in the security press and highly respected.  Andrew and I ill discuss how just when DevOps is catching on, adding to security to the mix can make it even more powerful. How can security help DevOps to succeed? How can DevOps help us with better security?

We will discuss what this means in terms of different kinds of security tools and services, the cloud and more.

If you are interested in security and DevOps register now and  tune in to the webinar next Tuesday
