For our next editions of DevSecCon Boston and London, taking place, respectively, in September and October 2017, we are looking for proposals/presentations on DevSecOps and continuously secure delivery from both new and seasoned speakers. If you have a story, experience, or new tools to share which centre on continuously secure DevSecOps, please do submit a proposal – we’d love to hear from you.

We are looking for proposals in the following areas:

Lightning talks (10-25 mins):

  • Talks describing DevSecOps, DevOps and SecOps experiences: the good, the bad and the ugly

Practices (45 mins):

Talks focussed on applying DevSecOps and continuously secure delivery in an organisation:

  • Development – e.g. how to integrate security in your development without impact
  • Testing – e.g. how to integrate security testing into a frequent release cycle
  • Public and private cloud – e.g. automating security using cloud services
  • Operations – e.g. how to introduce business-focussed monitoring
  • Security – e.g. how to benefit from continuous monitoring to reduce residual risk
  • DevSecOps – e.g. how to automate operational integrated security assurance

Organisational change (45 mins):

  • Talks dedicated to cultural changes and how to implement them

Technical workshops (1 – 2 hrs):

  • DevSecOps workshop to help our attendees practice new tools/techniques

It is entirely possible that a topic rejected in the categories above could still be included in an open space talk. We welcome any feedback on our submission process and stay at your disposal for any queries, contact us on
