DevSecOps Live Meetup Description

In this Practical DevSecOps’s DevSecOps Live online meetup, you’ll learn Shifting the DevSecOps Culture in the Organisation – Developer Friendly

Join Vandana Varma, Security Architect at IBM on her DevSecOps Journey.

We have been talking about the technical angle of DevOps. However, How do we go about building the DevSecOps culture in the organization? So far organizations are trying to have all three teams Dev, Sec, and Ops team together. However, the Ideal DevSecOps idea is each individual should know what is happening in the whole process. If a person or team has issues/concerns, then anyone can stand-up and take the DevSecOps further.

The talk will also showcase case studies around what has failed in DevOps and we could have prevented the case studies? What is the cause of the problem and what can be the prevention? How we can build a secure pipeline, what are the open-source tools we can leverage to test the pipeline based on the technology or programming languages?

This talk will also portray Call to action from different teams.

What a Developer should do, what a security and Operations person should do?

How to bring the teams to work together. Example – Earlier security teams used to sit in a room together. Now the security team sits with the operations and Dev team.



2hrs. 5min.


Slides will be uploaded after the talk.
