GitLab Security Workshop

Shifting Security Left

This workshop is at capacity. Please visit our events page to see future workshop dates.

Date: August 20, 2020
Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm PT

Rapid iterations of DevOps, along with a host of new tools, can make an application security program seem like a square peg in a round hole as enterprises try to push Sec into the middle of DevOps. At the same time, modern applications rely on a more dynamic environment that can introduce new security challenges, particularly as they scale.

In this session, we will provide hands-on examples with you in the driver’s seat and explore:

  • Details of exactly how to shift left, from both the developer’s perspective and the security team’s perspective, with workflows for each.
  • Understand how vulnerabilities are found by the developer within their CI pipeline and actions to take.
  • See how early visibility can reduce your risk and eliminate effort to help you scale your app sec program.
  • Automate and monitor your security policies.
  • Security challenges of next gen software and steps you can take now.
