Continuous defence against open source exploits

22/06/17

Public Sector DevOps & Container Expo | 19 July 2017 | London

Register for next month's expo for the public sector DevOps community to hear key speakers from the front line of public sector digital transformation and see the latest technologies at first hand.

Andrew Martin, DevOps lead in a major government department, has been added to the line-up of speakers to talk about the importance of getting the approach to security right with open source software.

"Open Source Software underpins the internet and many enterprises, but has repeatedly proven itself vulnerable to accident and tampering. High impact exploits lead us to question our unreserved trust in Open Source, and the wisdom of its proliferation is being questioned. As we fight to continuously secure millions of servers against these waves of attacks, have we found a crucial panacea in containers?"

Andrew will examine the anatomy of major vulnerabilities with examples and live demos, demonstrating their applicability to containerised applications, and exploring container native security tooling throughout the pipeline.

Responding to increasing citizen demand and continuing austerity, the public sector has high ambitions for digital transformation. But in a rapidly changing technology landscape it can be hard to keep up to date with the core tools that will help your team respond quickly to user needs and get products through the development cycle - and live - faster.

Organised by Amazic, Public Sector DevOps & Container Expo provides a unique opportunity to hear case studies from public sector professionals on their own digital transformation journeys - and to get hands on with the latest tools to help you establish modern, agile technology practices in the quest to support higher quality, more efficient public services.
