DevOps teams often face competing, even conflicting, objectives. Deliver business capabilities with speed and stability, while, at the same time, deliver cloud native applications that are secure and meet governance and compliance requirements. But in the quest for velocity, has security been left behind? Unfortunately, the answer is commonly “yes”.

With password, access control, and other security shortcomings on the rise, how does a DevOps stay at the peak of productivity, while ensuring best-practices security?

Join DevOps.com and industry expert, Mitchell Ashley, who will expose common mistakes DevOps teams make and provide guidance on how to remedy them for good. He’ll also discuss:

  • The essential role of privileged access management (PAM) across DevOps
  • How to build PAM early into the development process, toolchain, automated CI/CD, testing, cloud infrastructure, and application security
  • Common DevOps and security pitfalls
  • How to streamline and automate the management of secrets (passwords, tokens, keys, certificates) in development, test, and production environments to tighten DevOps security, while not skipping a beat.

This will be a webinar you won’t want to miss!
