Topic: DevOps – Security’s Big Opportunity

DevOps culture creates an opportunity for us to improve application security. Since developers are the ones producing code, integrating components and creating the innovations that fuel our digital economy, they are also the ones who will determine whether or not security is part of development or not. Security professionals must therefore learn to how to talk to developers about how to create a security program that will accelerate development and not slow it down.

Speaker: Peter Chestna, Director of Development Engagement, Veracode

As Director of Developer Engagement at Veracode/CA, Pete provides customers with practical advice on how to successfully roll out developer-centric application security programs. Relying on more than 10 years of direct AppSec practitioner experience as both a developer and development leader, Pete provides information on best practices amassed from personal experience in addition to working with Veracode’s 1,000+ global customers. He led Veracode’s transformation from Waterfall to Agile to DevOps and from monolith to microservice architecture. He is certified as both a scrum master and product owner. From his experience as both a practitioner and consultant, Pete has spoken internationally at both security and developer conferences on the topics of Application Security (AppSec), Agile and DevOps.
