    Hi Mikhail,

       How much do you think the application that a team / organization is trying to deliver affects their decision?  If it is substantial, could you please share the same application you will be using as reference - not code but architecture / constraints / etc.

    Mikhail Advani / Rajesh Tamhane - DevOpSec: Rapid Security in the Cloud with AWS and CIS

    20 Mins

    High performance teams are releasing software to production several times a day. This poses a challenge to Ops and infosec who need to have the confidence that  these releases will not lead to a security breach in the infrastructure. DevOpSec or DevSecOps is a discipline where development, operations and  security work collaboratively to achieve security  compliance in agile teams. In this demonstration of our open source project, we show how we used DevOps and security best practices to achieve and test AWS infrastructure.
