CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – March 2023

In our second CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event in March, our expert speaker will talk about the ever changing DevOps, DevSecOps in the Cloud Computing environment.

Cloud-native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.Developer led organizations are innovating more rapidly, cheaply, and independently than ever before as they build new products and services to keep up with ever increasing competitive market conditions. 

Open source software typically accounts for 70% to 90% of code in Web and cloud applications. There is some findings from Open Source Security and Risk Analysis report states that 98% of applications used open source and that open source libraries and components made up more than 75% of the code in the average software application. Most applications, 84%, had at least one vulnerability — the typical application had 158 vulnerabilities — and 60% of applications had at least one high-severity issue.

Organization needs to look into Application Lifecycle Security to identify misconfigurations as early as possible in the Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) development process. This means identifying code vulnerabilities and CI/CD vulnerabilities to ensure faster remediation of code misconfigurations.

In this session, the speaker will provide lifehack tips on how organizations can adopt DevSecOps with low friction and how DevSecOps benefits organization by simplifying developer experience and accelerating application development with security guardrails.

Participants will claim 1 CPE.
