The explosion of “Cloud-Native” Apps orchestrated with Kubernetes has brought both new agile development processes and new unprecedented risks to businesses of all sizes. Traditionally, organizations have relied upon gates throughout the deployment process to prevent bad code from going to production. However, there has to be a paradigm shift to this solution as the fast, iterative DevOps deployment process requires a new approach to security. In this talk, we will review the risks associated with applications deployed in Kubernetes, the effect it has on the development process and how to think about security in such a dynamic ecosystem. The session will also include a live demos.
