CSA HKM Knowledge Sharing Event – April 2017

CSA Knowledge Sharing Event provides an excellent opportunity for cybersecurity professionals to discuss the latest trends and developments in IT and in the process build a close-knitted cybersecurity community in Hong Kong and Macau.

This month we have invited Mr Iolaire McKinnon, Senior Consultant – Security, Risk and Complaince, at Amazon Web Services to deliver a talk entitled “Implementing DevSecOps – Evolving Security Culture”.

In this talk, Mr McKinnon will introduce the concept of DevSecOps; how using it can enable continuous compliance while allowing developers to deliver fast; and discuss the implications of applying DevSecOps strategies to a cloud environment, where infrastructure is also code.

Iolaire McKinnon is the Senior Consultant for Security, Risk and Compliance for AWS in Hong Kong & Taiwan. He has a wealth of experience in financial services and online gaming, with roles as diverse as risk manager, web developer, and datacenter construction manager. Iolaire welcomes the new cloud future, and is glad that going to the datacenter at 2am to replace failing hard drives no longer has to be a thing.
