Abstract

Early on in the "cloud" era, Werner Vogels offered his famous quote "You Build It, You Run It". With DevOps this has become a mantra for shared responsibility between developers and operations. Operations learned how to process infrastructure as code and participate early in the supply chain of a service's life cycle. Developers learned that they had responsibilities to enable and in many cases operationalize their service. Now there is a new movement to include and collaborate in a similar way with Security. This is all part of the ideal approach where we "shift everything left" in the delivery pipeline.

In this session, we will talk about how developers and operators can include security in all parts of the delivery pipeline, and implement security gates in the same way as they implement code test gates.
