Why DevSecOps?

About the DevSecCon Community

DevSecCon strives to be the foremost community and educational resource for all things security within engineering disciplines.

We bring together the greatest security experts to share their experiences on building security into their workflows, discussing tools that can help, and reviewing good and bad practices seen in the real world. The community is a safe and inclusive space for developers to gain knowledge about application security whether you are new to the topic or have been working in the security space for years.

What is DevSecOps?

We’ve asked our conference attendees to describe DevSecOps in their own words, watch the video to hear what they have to say…

The industry challenge

IT security has never been more important – and if there’s one thing we all know, it’s that it will only get more critical, not less. But with business pressures demanding quick release cycles for new software, security is too often managed as an afterthought, compressed into a reduced timeframe and vastly compromised as a result. But you shouldn’t have to sacrifice security for speed of delivery…

A new perspective

DevSecOps is a new approach that has the intense collaboration of DevOps and Security at its heart. Together these two core competencies can find ways to build security into development continuously, without impacting critical deadlines and delaying release cycles.

DevSecCon is a platform for leading experts and practitioners to showcase their DevSecOps ideas in thought-provoking talks and workshops. Attendees learn how to implement security as code in the development process, ensure secure continuous delivery, automate and monitor security processes and create an inclusive and collaborative culture between DevOps and Security.

FAQs

MyDevSecOps, a community and educational resource for all things security.

We’ll bring together the greatest security experts to share their experiences on building security into their workflows, discussing tools that can help, and reviewing good and bad practices seen in the real world. The community will be a safe and inclusive space for developers to gain knowledge about application security whether they are new to the topic or have been working in the security space for years.

In the DevSecCon community we believe that community can’t be maintained or sustained through one-off events a year, it’s a year-round thing.  Most of us would agree it’s important to build security into our development process, but how do we get it done?  Being able to connect with our peers who we met at DevSecCon event or DevSecOps meetups will enable us to continue learning  about the latest emerging trends, tools, exploits, practices and more, and we encourage you to get involved and share your expertise with us too.

This community is the merge of two of the leading DevSecOps communities in the world – the Secure Developer community (later called MyDevSecOps), and the DevSecCon global event series.  In early 2016 the team at Snyk founded the Secure Developer Podcast to arm developers and AppSec teams with better ways to upgrade their security posture. A couple of years later, Snyk also acquired the DevSecCon global event series to enable it to thrive in the long-term.  Three years on, and the podcast continues to share a wealth of information, and the events to bring together some of the leading security practitioners in the world. Our aim is to grow this resource into a thriving ecosystem of knowledge – both digitally and at in-person events.

DevSecCon is a series of conferences and training courses dedicated to DevSecOps. Our aim is to provide a source of inspiration, education and networking opportunities. Our events are packed with top advice from new and seasoned speakers and currently run in Singapore, Tel Aviv, Boston and London.

DevSecCon is for anybody who wants to challenge the status quo in their organisation and change their approach to secure development and delivery. To name just a few: DevOps Team Leads, Security professionals, Agile practitioners, Developers, Product innovation Managers, Pentesters, DevSecOps Team Leads, Head of Platforms, Sysadmins, Cloud Security Strategists, Architects, Engineers, Analysts, CTOs, CISOs, IT Managers, Consultants, Directors, Application Security Experts, Project Managers, …

DevSecCon was acquired by Snyk in 2019, however it continues to be led by community volunteers, the review committee, and a core team of DevSecOps enthusiasts. You can find the team here, and you are welcome to join us and volunteer with us!

Speaking opportunities

We are always looking for seasoned and new speakers to present at the diversity of events we run – virtual, in-person, meetups and more. If you have a good talk idea you can find more information and submit your proposal here.

All of the virtual events are recorded, as they are streamed live, and then made available for on-demand viewing – you can find those here.

The DevSecCon conference aim to record at least 25% of the sessions at our conferences – you can find previous session recordings here.

You can showcase your solutions and technologies to decision makers, influencers and users at all levels of IT Security, DevOps and Development as a DevSecCon sponsor. Contact us to learn more about our sponsorship opportunities.

Nope, Snyk has its own separate user community that you are welcome to join as well if you are a Snyk user.

This community is powered by the Snyk team to keep up the momentum and flow throughout the year, while fostering a vendor-neutral space to share knowledge and best practices related to software security. Content will be focused on DevSecOps, application security, cloud native security and any other topic related to security, and you are always welcome to contribute!

THE DEVSECCON CONFERENCE
In 2015 we hosted our first DevSecCon conference in London. It was so successful that now DevSecCon takes place in multiple locations across the globe. It’s the world’s only conference dedicated to DevSecOps – the practice of building security into development processes. Our conferences and training courses are packed with inspiring presentations by industry experts and networking opportunities, making it an invaluable event for anyone working in Development, DevOps and Security.
