This workshop is suitable for attendees who are familiar with Kubernetes and cloud native concepts, and who have previous experience deploying and maintaining Kubernetes clusters.

Kubernetes is extremely agile, powerful and useful, but it also introduces new complexities to your infrastructure and organization, and can easily expose critical infrastructure to new threats and vulnerabilities. Modern cloud native organizations must now infuse security best practices into their organization and complete DevOps workflow. However, most developers are not security experts.

DevSecOps is a methodology that integrates security, compliance, and configuration guardrails into developers’ workflows so that they can build and deploy Kubernetes workloads with agility—all while ensuring that their clusters and applications are protected from threats and malicious activity by default.

This half day, hands-on workshop will guide you through the risks Kubernetes introduces and remediation and hardening strategies using a combination of presentations, tutorials, and hands-on exercises. Learn best practices and tactics that will get you on a fast track to hardening your Kubernetes applications both in development and in production.
