Security and Acceptance - Two bottlenecks of DevOps
The core tenets of DevOps are to look at bottlenecks and remove those to achieve faster release frequency and improved quality. When looking at areas causing bottlenecks, Security and Acceptance Testing soon come across as constraints needing attention. Then debate starts if security needs of competitive business environment is actually slowing down the DevOps effectiveness? Can both go hand in hand or needs to be treated separately? Same with acceptance testing. Is it possible to have a thorough acceptance testing while still delivering at a faster cadence? The objective of this session is to examine these aspects carefully and see if we can have best of both the worlds. So while DevOps receives the support and participation of security for accelerating releases, how can security and acceptance can take advantage of DevOps to support a more efficient secure program and create a "Trust and Verify" mindset insisted by Gartner.
