• DevSecOps - The Changing Landscape of Attacks, Maury Cupitt, Sonatype

    The modern day application consists of approximately 80% open source code. In 2017 there were 87 Billion Downloads from The Central Repository (the largest open source Java repository in the world). 1 in 8 of those open source libraries contain a known security vulnerability. Known vulnerabilities in open source are widely exploited as an attack vector and lead to well document breaches such as the one that hit Equifax in 2017 (Apache Struts 2 Rest API library). Cyber Security crime costs the global economy $450 billion in 2016. This eclipsed the entire illicit drug trade which cost the global economy $430 billion. Companies looking to accelerate development and embrace DevOps need to embrace solutions like Jenkins to automate their builds and releases. Companies looking to innovate faster while reducing their risk need to ensure security is included in the development process (DevSecOps) by building secure CI/CD pipelines with integrated and automated quality guardrails such as Nexus Firewall and Nexus Lifecycle for Open Source Governance and inspection during every Jenkins Build. In this session we will take you through how to configure your builds in Jenkins that ensure development can continue to accelerate while also layering in open source security and governance.

  • Database DevOps - Keep Your Delivery Processes Secure, Brian McRae, Redgate

    DevOps is a key focus for the majority of his conversations, but as IT teams are under increasing pressure to demonstrate data privacy and protection with regulation like GDPR, HIPPA and SOX, among others, tonight we’ll focus on how you can combine these two areas and extend one to embrace the other without compromising on either side. Ultimately, we hope you leave today’s meetup with an understanding of how Database DevOps can ensure you continue to increase the speed of delivery, securely, without jeopardizing compliance. --- For the past 25 years Brian has worked in various roles in technology, ranging from a software engineer, database architect, IT Manager to a solutions consultant and more recently Sales Engineer at Redgate, where he is responsible for helping clients across a range of industries securely automate their database development, change management, continuous integration and deployment processes.

  • Introducing the Cloud Native Application Bundle [cnab.io] - Nirmal Mehta

    CNAB embraces the multi-tool world and allows for packaging up multiple formats and their accompanying toolchains into a single artefact. Imagine a single installable package that contains Terraform code to launch an RDS instance and a Compose file or Helm charts describing the application that will use it. Today you might package and distribute those separately, with CNAB you can keep them together. That means you can share metadata, cryptographically sign a single artifact, push all aspects of the application to a central registry and more. In this talk you'll learn about CNAB, discuss some of the problems it solves, and see demos of the accompanying tooling. --- Nirmal Mehta, Chief Technologist in the Strategic Innovations Group at Booz Allen Hamilton specializing in research, implementation and integration of emerging technologies to Booz Allen’s federal government client base.
