Hell Has Frozen Over: DevOps & Security

A session at MountainWest RubyConf 2013

Wednesday 3rd April, 2013

10:00am to 10:30am (MST)

A lot of Dev and Ops people look at their security teams with disdain: "Those guys are arseholes. All they ever do is sit in meetings and tell us no." They know there's no way Security will ever embrace DevOps. In turn many security folks see the emergence of DevOps as the inmates being put in charge of the asylum. It'll all end in chaos and disaster.

So who's right? Can DevOps and security co-exist? Can they be friends? We will take a deeper look at:

  • What DevOps means for Security
  • How DevOps can be sold to Security
  • How DevOps changes the risk landscape for the better
  • How those Security folks might know some things that could make DevOps better

You'll see how DevOps and Security can have a long and prosperous friendship that makes more awesome.
