Talk: DevOps Security Awareness

A lot of engineers have moved from doing purely software development to also becoming responsible for the deployment and maintenance of infrastructure. Infrastructure brings its own set of challenges especially for security, which can get overlooked. Combine this with a vast set of tools that add abstraction, making it even easier to hide risks. My colleague and I want to provide a scenario of a fictional security breach. To present this we chose a novel way; A boardroom conversation where the Development Lead walks through a Root Cause Analysis with the CTO.
