Faster vs Secure: Threats, risks, governance and containerized applications

Future Cyber Tech, Application Security & DevOps Theatre

Wed 17th Oct 10:10 to 10:40

When deploying containerized applications at scale, a trust model is a key component of secure deployments. Defining that trust model requires an understanding of the risk factors impacting both application development and assumptions imposed by the orchestration solution. This trust model needs continual reassessment guided by the evolving threat landscape. For example, modification of existing patch management and continuous monitoring processes are often required for containerized applications and should include information from the trust model.

What you will take away from this session

  • Assumptions present in the container creation and deployment process which impact security
  • How patch management models differ in a container model from a server or virtual model
  • How to address continuous security monitoring without requiring agents within containers
  • How to shorten the response time from external threat disclosure to impact assessment
