ATARC Advancing DevSecOps Throughout the DoD Virtual Summit

Join the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) for a summit on advancing development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) across the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Panel discussion topics include:

DevSecOps – The People Problem

When you hear the word DevSecOps, what does it mean to you? What is the most authentic meaning of the term? DevSecOps gives people, those with the most context, the responsibility for security decisions without sacrificing required safety. DevSecOps is less of a technology problem and more of an organizational and people issue.

Tune in as topic experts dive into what it means to adopt DevSecOps from a people-change perspective. How should the new organization be structured? What skills are necessary? Listen as topic experts explore how to scale a trusted approach to DevSecOps.

Did DevSecOps Forget Compliance & Audit?

What would DevSecOps be if DevOps never existed? Do our existing security models provide a means for DevSecOps to be successful? The “shift-left” buzz of DevSecOps focuses on bringing security validations closer to the point in time when a developer commits source code. Security is one crucial aspect of highly regulated software delivery, but what about compliance and auditing?

Tune into this panel as topic experts discuss other aspects of highly regulated software delivery that need to shift left as well: Compliance & Audit. Listen as panelists discuss what this means and what it looks like in any organization where large sets of regulations slow software delivery. What are the best strategies for incorporating Compliance and Audit into the DevSecOps space? What best practices do these topic experts recommend for regulating slow software delivery?
