Presentation: The Emergent Cloud Security Toolchain for CI/CD


Speaker: James Wickett – Head of Research, Signal Sciences

Abstract:

All organizations want to go faster and decrease friction in their cloud software delivery pipeline. Infosec has an opportunity to change their classic approach from blocker to enabler. This talk will discuss hallmarks of CI/CD and some practical examples for adding security testing across different organizations. The talk will cover emergent patterns, practices and toolchains that bring security to the table.
