Using OPA Gatekeeper for your Cluster Policies

Online event

We are excited to announce the February meetup scheduled for Wednesday, February 16th.

1st Presentation:
Using OPA Gatekeeper for your Cluster Policies

Every company has compliance requirements to be met for production workloads. At the same time, it's best to keep with the best practices to ensure maximum security for your workloads. This talk will explore how you can use OPA Gatekeeper for creating policies for your Kubernetes cluster.

We are excited to announce the February meetup scheduled for Wednesday February 19th.

There'll be 2 presentations on Container Security:

*Building Rootless, Stateless, and Immutable Containers
*DevSecOps and CloudNative Security Best Practices

1st Presentation:
Building Rootless, Stateless, and Immutable Containers

Increased Portability, Improved Scalability, Simple and Fast Deployment, Enhanced Productivity, Reduced Infrastructural Cost with Improved Resource Utilization - hard to disagree with the values Containerization brings on the table! However, we all know that Great Power comes with Great Responsibility!
Containers can elevate your IT Delivery and Operations drastically at the same time can also impose a significant risk if not done rightly! Let's look at those Security and Risk adversity principles are and ee how can we build Containers that are Rootless, Stateless and Immutable!

Himanshu's expertise includes building Enterprise-grade platforms for Microservices, Distributed Messaging with Kafka and DevOps with Kubernetes/Docker. Himanshu has implemented several DevOps projects and have build Advanced CI/CD pipelines for build, release and deployment automation, configuration management.

2nd Presentation:
DevSecOps and CloudNative Security Best Practices

DevOps practices are well known but not so much the practice of DevSecOps. Microservices applications have
such a wide attack surface that using manual and traditional security practices is just like putting a square peg in a round hole.
This talk will discuss DevSecOps in a CloudNative environment with an emphasis on Kubernetes' best practices. Demos will accompany the presentation.
