Venue: Deloitte, 100 Kimball Drive, Parsippany NJ

3:30 – 4:00 Check In/Registration
4:00 – 4:15 NJ ISSA Chapter Updates
4:15 – 5:15 Presentation: Automate or Die – DevSecOps in the Age of Software Supply Chain Attacks
Irina Tishelman, Solution Architect, Sonatype

As nimble organizations deliver new innovations, adversaries are also upping their game; something we’ve seen in recent high profile and devastating cyber attacks. Bad actors have the intent and ability to exploit security vulnerabilities in the software supply chain – and in some cases plant vulnerabilities themselves. They have increased scale through automation and improved breach success through precision targeting. If we don’t fight back by doing the same – automating security directly in the DevOps pipeline – then we’ll always be at the hackers’ mercy. This session will provide new research on the above, and details on how to get started.

Key takeaways:

• Real-world examples of how large and small companies are implementing DevSecOps practices in their own delivery pipelines, and increasing developer awareness to risks
• Key insights from the 2019 DevSecOps community report – including the top investments for automated security
• A walkthrough of how security principles have been automated into a CICD pipeline and what standards for implementation are beginning to follow suite
• Why DevSecOps is more than a buzzword, and why it’s vital to protecting your software supply chain
• How automating security of policies makes it harder to ignore.
