1:00 – 1:30 pm Registration & Coffee
1:30 – 2:00 pm Nicolas Bizard, Solution Architect at Credit Suisse

Devops culture transformation at scale at Credit Suisse
The talk covers our DevOps-journey on a mission-critical application (4k+ user, 40+ developers/multiple locations). I will explain the cultural change, technical setup and best practices: How we shifted the culture of control & escalation to collaboration (incl. Biz) by fostering the team’s autonomy and engineering excellence. How we leveraged feedback loops across all stages (pipeline, monitoring, in-app-feedback, etc.) measured based on defined metrics. As a result we have increased the release cadence from 4/y to bi-weekly, easing the burden of release & roll-out through canary releases.

2:00 – 2:30 pm Jens Kober, IT Architect at ISCeco

The next level of Security in DevSecOps and related challenges
IT Operations of the Federal Dept WBF (ISCeco) has centralized Dev and Ops onto a standardized platform already increasing security of the systems and applications. By adding SAST and SCA (Software Component Analysis), security is taken to a completely new level. The coverage of the entire SDLC, its integration and automation as well as responsibilities and cost sharing are particularly challenging. This “new world” has multiple external and internal providers who develop and operate applications.

However, there is another aspect to consider. Who takes care of keeping all these components up to date? There is a bunch of people working on the project during development time. But once the application is running in production there is nobody taking care of the up-to-dateness of the components used in the application.

Therefore, in this heterogeneous environment new ways of thinking and executing are necessary. Some issues are being solved others remain to be discussed, in Government as well as in the private sector. Join our journey and participate in the discussion to a truly secure DevSecOps!

2:30 – 3:00 pm Thomas Hasler, IT Architect at dieMobiliar

Automated DevSecOps Governance @ dieMobiliar
Giving responsibility to Feature Teams is a good thing. On the other side there are governance requirements regarding the governance of security, traceability, auditability etc. of the software processes.

At the dieMobiliar we have build steps like Code Coverage, Licence Scanning or penetration testing into our CI / CD Pipeline. These things are run and measured in an automated way, instead of doing it manually.

This talk will show how we went about implementing DevSecOps and what we have learned on the way.
