Implementing Security Compliance Through Automation

Joseph Bennet - Lead Consultant Contino,
Aaron Brock - Lead Consultant Contino,
Jason Lutz, NPA - Senior DevOps Consultant, Security

Topic:

Hybrid cloud change control and compliance can be manual, cumbersome and not scale well.  Joseph, Aaron and Jason will present how they migrated a manual process of log ingestion for clients AWS flow logs into an automated process driven by what are typically considered DevOps tools such as Git, Ansible, Jenkins, Terraform and Trumpet.  This reduced the process timeline from days to hours, and allowed different teams to more effectively collaborate in managing the process.  This mash-up of tools and how they were used provides important lessons for the future of Security Automation.  Don’t miss this highly technical presentation which will include demo code and interactive chat session with the presenters.

No one is perfect, but software should be. As we continue to add software into more aspects of our lives, the impact of bugs becomes increasingly more dangerous. Well cover the history of bugs that have killed people, what can be done to prevent such tragedies, and likely future industry trends. We’ll also talk about various policies and techniques that can be used to create software that is trustworthy and bug free.

This plays into last months presentation on the CISSP Domain One and how human life should be priority one when balancing decisions on cyber security.
