As the popularity of DevOps grew, so did a common refrain: Continuous integration and continuous delivery create an environment to continuously introduce vulnerabilities into software. The idea was that the rapid speed of DevOps was in opposition to the concept of secure development. However, as time went on, it became apparent that a system that fosters collaboration and promotes automation creates continuous opportunities for integrating security testing into the development process.
During this session Maria Laughlin, Vice President of engineering at CA Veracode, and Chris Eng, Vice President of research at CA Veracode, will provide their perspectives on how to build security into a company’s culture so that it permeates the development process. They will discuss the need for empathy and understanding between teams and offer practical advice on making security a part of the DevOps environment such that it becomes another element of quality.

Is GDPR Getting Ready to Give Your Company the Left Hook?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces new and broad changes for data privacy for any company that retains EU customer data. Because so many companies are global, this regulation will most likely involve your company. GDPR gives EU citizens far more control on how you use their personal data. They can limit your use, be forgotten, and even seek damages if their data is misused or breached.
Join CA Technologies’ Jeff Hughes, Sr. Principal Product Marketing Manager and DevOps.com founder, Alan Shimel, as they discuss this upcoming legislation and how companies should go the distance by preparing for the May 2018 deadline! Jeff will provide concrete steps that you can take now to start or continue preparing for this new regulation. You’ll walk away with a knock-out action plan to start moving your testing and compliance teams in the right direction.
Modern Application Monitoring is the DevOps X-Factor – Discover why!
Just as we’re starting to get our heads around application containerization and orchestration and along comes serverless computing, service mesh architecture and hype-free Internet of Things use cases. Now DevOps practitioners need to elevate monitoring capabilities beyond relatively simple guarantees of technology uptime and application performance into the more challenging area of ensuring an optimum customer experience. An experience that fuses physical and digital, isn’t time bounded, and incorporates a complex series of customer journey touchpoints.
Join a conversation with Pete Waterhouse, Senior Director of Product and Solutions Marketing at CA Technologies and DevOps.com founder, Alan Shimel to understand:
- What’s on the near-term biz-tech horizon (including containers, serverless, IoT) and how this will radically impact your monitoring strategies
- How traditional practices in continuous delivery, testing and monitoring must evolve to support new digital models and the Internet of Things
- The increased importance and benefit of application performance analytics across the DevOps toolchain
Data Privacy – Why your company needs to pay attention to what’s behind the compliance curtain!
Data Privacy has once again vaulted to the forefront with Facebook and other large companies grappling with data breaches and the use (or misuse) of personal data. We are charting new frontiers in data privacy and legislation alone will not mitigate the data challenges that lay ahead. Brand loyalty and brand trust can take years to build, but can be lost in an instant with one data privacy misstep. There are a number of regulatory challenges facing enterprises globally that need to be considered as well including The US Patriot Act and the upcoming GDPR requirements. Join us learn from Alan Shimel of DevOps.com and DevOps testing and compliance expert Jeff Hughes of CA Technologies on:
- What is Data Privacy?
- What are the penalties for non-compliance?
- How can companies comply with data privacy laws?
- What else can a company do beyond adhering to compliance regulations to protect data privacy?
Enjoy a lively discussion with useful ideas that will help your teams exceed compliance regulations and preserve trust with your customers.
