Talk #1
"Container Runtime Security with Falco"
Host intrusion detection (HID) has been around for some time. What if we rethought the problems HID solves in the context of Cloud Native platforms? What if we can detect abnormal behaviour in the application, container runtime, & cluster environment as well? In this talk, we'll present Falco, a CNCF Sandbox project for runtime security. We will show how Falco taps Linux system calls & the Kubernetes API to provide low-level insight into application behaviour, & how to write Falco rules to detect abnormal behaviour. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of what problems runtime security solves, & how Falco can provide runtime security & incident response.

Talk #2
"Why should you care about DevOps ROI?"
I have spent million $ to build pipelines, how do I know I am making progress?
Most companies do not think about creating realtime dashboards of their DevOps implementation a priority until its absolutely necessary. A strong dashboarding strategy always helps teams, companies to measure the success of their pipelines, identifying weak link and highlight problem areas. Attendees will leave with increased awareness around DevOps ROI and how do we measure it realtime!
