David Melamed

Jit, Israel

Open Policy Agent as a Control Engine

In this talk, we will focus on four critical security controls that will be integrated as part of the CI/CD pipeline: static application security (SAST), dependency check (SCA), infrastructure as code (IaC) and dynamic application security (DAST). Anything from your Terraform deletes to code vulnerabilities, infrastructure misconfigurations and more can be operationalized and enforced through OPA and ArgoCD or even other GitOps methods and CI tools like Github Actions. Code examples will be showcased as part of this session.

Kim Carter

BinaryMist, New Zealand

Purple Teaming With OWASP PurpleTeam

In this session, Kim will discuss the problems that PurpleTeam solves, such as training the Build User with advice and tips on security defects as you fix the defects that PurpleTeam highlights.

As well as the huge cost savings of finding and fixing your application and infrastructure security defects early (as you’re introducing them) as opposed to late (weeks or months later with external penetration testing) or not at all.

From GitHub to PlanetScale – How Schema Changes and Pull Requests Go Hand in Hand

When Linus designed Git, one of his famous quotes was “branching is not the problem, merging is”. Properly merging database schema changes along with code is even harder – especially if many teams and terabytes of data get involved. Lilli will tell how those challenges got addressed at GitHub and how the same tooling found its way into PlanetScale’s database branching and merging workflow.

Digital Transformation Through GitOps and Infrastructure as Code

This talk is focused on how one team at Cisco has leveraged this model and what a powerful impact it has had. We will discuss the goals of the team, what problems they had before implementing this model, then the framework of what they implemented and the operational model. Digital transformation through GitOps and Infrastructure as Code has been successful.
