DevSecOps – Integrated Security Automation
DevOps changes not only the behavior of Development and Operations teams, it also has a big impact on enabling or governance functions. With a focus on security we’ll shed some light on the core aspects that are changing and how to change from a vertical towards a horizontal perspective on product delivery thanks to investments into automation solutions.

KPIs for managing and optimizing DevSecOps success
We need to adjust DevOps to include security. With high profile breaches it’s clear that simply guarding the borders is not enough. By adding security to a DevOps program, the relevant stakeholders will be forced to think about security in a more granular way – already during the portfolio management or latest at the start of the software development process, rather than as an afterthought. That’s what we are working on at Mobiliar.

Unfortunately in a DevOps environment bringing business and IT close together, accountability for doing so is not always obvious. Business sets the priorities, the CIO leads the architecture, development and operations teams and there is additionally a security team, sometimes also lead by the CIO. But how to get all the relevant stakeholders on your side so they will direct their teams and enforce security for the sake of the enterprise?

You have to start with risk. By keeping the focus on risk, CIOs will help the business understand how IT can contribute to breaking into a new market or experimenting with a new type of analytics — as well as how IT can minimize the potential dangers of doing so. In addition, CISOs need to make DevSecOps a priority.

In this session we will discuss some KPIs which can help align both, security and nonsecurity stakeholders as to where, why, and how security fits into the process and can help align both security and nonsecurity stakeholders.

4:15 – 6:30 pm Workshop II (technical sessions/talks)
