More than 20 pioneers from the field of DevSecOps will come together at the DevSecCon Singapore 2018 on February 22-23. Since its inception in 2015, DevSecCon has been hosting conferences and training around the globe with the intention of showcasing the latest developments in the emerging field of DevSecOps.
This is the world's only conference on DevSecOps that takes place every year in four different locations. Unlike the previous Singapore conference, DevSecCon 2018 will take place over two days (22-23 February) at Swissotel Merchant Court.
DevSecOps is a new approach that strives to embed security controls and processes into the development and business workflows. Hosted for the first time in 2015, DevSecCon has emerged as a highly preferred destination amongst aspiring IT professionals looking to bring their DevSecOps skills up to scratch and to drive forward innovation and intense collaboration between DevOps and Security teams.
DevSecCon Singapore 2018 will be packed with inspiring insights from distinguished DevSecOps thought leaders who are actively working on finding new ways to build security into development continuously, without impacting critical deadlines and delaying release cycles. One of the key sessions at the conference will involve a workshop where the attendees will compete against each other to become the ultimate "Secure Code Warrior" in a hands-on, gamified training environment. This workshop is the ideal platform for individuals looking to learn how to code securely and not introduce security issues in code, identify and fix existing vulnerabilities and the most common coding mistakes made by the developers.
DevSecCon Singapore 2018 will also have several talk sessions covering the most pertinent industry topics. In one of these talk sessions, the attendees will have the opportunity to find out about the risks associated with GraphQL and Microservices from a noted expert. The topics covered during this session will help the attendees overcome the security challenges when implementing GraphQL based APIs and understand the need for tweaking conventional DevSecOps tools for security assurance.
Highlighting the importance of DevSecCon, Mike Shema, the VP of SecOps and Research at Cobalt.io and one of the keynote speakers at DevSecCon Singapore 2018, said: "I love the idea of DevSecOps and am looking forward to come to DevSecCon to hear from people that are actually practitioners. By embracing the DevSecOps model we're creating more participation from security teams with the people that write and deploy code. Rather than security mandating from up high 'thou shall do this', the aim is to make security part of the development journey and change their answer from 'no, don't do that' to 'that sounds hard, but here's how we can try to do that in asecure way'."
DevSecCon will also offer a wide range of other activities for the attendees to enjoy. One of the centres of attraction will be the exhibitor's area where companies will showcase their DevSecOps innovations and technologies. There will also be all-day complimentary food and refreshments and the networking drinks on the evening of day one.
