Summary: Building a DevSecOps mindset: stories from the trenches in the clouds

DevSecOps principles come in as an extension of the DevOps principles so that the teams not only achieve Development and Operations goals, but also simultaneously augment them with Information Security goals therefore achieving business objectives.

Better security means being available and capable of easily recovering from issues, so our goals include: observe by leveraging automation to generate, track and gather evidence on demand and for operational and compliance purposes, overcome security problems before they cause catastrophic results and increase predictability of the systems. So why not see how we engage InfoSec Early, embed security within CI/CD, implement security beyond compliance & adopt a tailored approach. At Adobe, being tasked with monitoring an environment consisting of thousands of hosts serving several products scattered across AWS, Azure and data centers in multiple geographies using different Linux and Windows flavours is the stuff of nightmares so we came up with and open sourced Hubble a modular security and compliance framework for building robust host monitoring which leverages the capabilities of Facebook’s OsQuery.

Getting all teams to consistently apply most of the DevSecOps practices is a journey, neither short nor easy, but unavoidable if we want to succeed in the world of services.

Summary: Addressing internal threats with Continuous Application Security

In today’s day and age, no matter what the industry, companies are storing and processing a vast amount of information in various IT platforms and solutions. As the amount of data and users grows, the business needs will overshadow important aspects of the application life-cycle. Business leaders accept risks which they have very little information about. This is where a continuous application security can come as an added value, helping identify risks and collaborating on remediation plans.

On a more detailed level, security practices are often divided into pillars, this presentation is all about leveraging current capabilities and services to increase the value that information security provides back to the business.

Starting with the application security assessments, these should be on a repeatable schedule, at least for the critical applications, this approach is also tailored to agile methodologies, with shorter and more frequent audits performed in each sprints. Security requirements become security user stories and are added to the backlog during planning events. Vulnerability management should be used in correlation with AppSec assessments, these automated scans will reduce the amount of human effort required. Penetration testing reports reveal not only vulnerabilities of the application, but also information about all the assets and the underlying infrastructure that can be used to consolidate the CMDB.

This presentation outlines a new approach where risks that are ignored or forgotten become daily agenda items. All risks prioritized based on business impact so business leaders have greater insight and control over the future of their data.

Bio: Cristian is an IT Security lead with experience of successfully delivering projects and initiatives within the entertainment, supply chain and manufacturing sectors. Providing expertise in the field of application security, penetration testing, red teaming and incident response. Focused on building and developing relations with business stakeholders, managing expectations and resolving conflicts by providing clear insights into security requirements and helping people understand security risks before having escalations or incidents.
