DevOps Works! ...Why Hasn’t Security Kept Up?
Over the past decade, DevOps has solidified itself as the best-in-class way for engineering teams to build, deliver, and operate software. Software companies that have started in more recent years have had the fortune of being able to bake DevOps in from the beginning, and older companies know that DevOps is the future. With this proven model, however, application security has not kept up.

The current application security model is broken. While operations and QA were “shifting left,” embracing automation and dev-first tooling, application security stayed stagnant. Many application security teams today still rely on infrequent production-only scans, outdated tooling, and internal cultural processes that prevent scaling. In this talk, StackHawk Founder & CEO, Joni Klippert, will dig into her learnings from building DevOps focused VictorOps from seed stage to its acquisition by Splunk and where the future of application security is headed. Learn how engineering teams can take ownership of their AppSec, the role security teams can play in building infrastructure for secure application development, and how this all can be automated in the pipeline.

Measuring DevOps
Learn how to measure and improve your team's software delivery performance by assessing four key software delivery metrics.

Software metrics often pit different functions against each other and result in local optimizations at the cost of overall outcomes. Our research has developed and validated four metrics that provide a high-level systems view of software delivery and performance and predict an organization’s ability to achieve its goals. Accurate collection of the data required to measure the four key metrics can be time consuming, error prone, and incomplete.

This session will introduce some automation with Google Cloud Platform that automates the generation and collection of the metrics required to measure the four key software delivery performance metrics.

State Of DevSecOps - Empower Developers To Find And Fix Security Flaws
The top two measurements for development team success are quality and customer satisfaction. Security flaws decrease both. Unfortunately, developers aren’t taught how to write secure code. Application security pros are charged with the task of helping developers release secure code without slowing their release speed. DevSecOps methods can be used to effectively automate prerelease testing and production protections at the speed developers require.

Building an Online Store With GitLab Pages
Many businesses today find that having an online storefront is increasingly becoming a necessity if they want to maintain and grow their customer base. However, in Kenya where ecommerce is rapidly growing, entrepreneurs and small business owners are finding that many professional ecommerce platforms haven’t been designed for the local market and are either expensive and/or cannot be easily customized for their needs.

Thankfully, checkout tools such as Flutter and Stripe allow one to turn a simple static webpage into an online shop. GitLab CI/CD provides a mechanism to run tests, track changes, and deploy static websites using GitLab Pages. For many small businesses who want their own online space at a low cost and low complexity, this is an ideal solution. This solution is also helpful for projects that have associated merchandise. In this session, Benson will give an overview of how this system is being used in Kenya along with recorded a demo

Ubiquitous Quality Through Continuous Testing Pipelines
Continuous Testing is the crucial ingredient to rapidly deliver quality apps from your GitLab CI/CD pipelines. Rather than weekly or monthly release cycles, you need scalable quality patterns that deliver rapid daily or hourly releases. You need to thoroughly test every commit.

We’ll discuss building powerful continuous testing workflows with GitLab CI/CD pipelines and GitLab’s mabl integration to deliver testing insights on every push, directly into the relevant developer commit or merge request. We’ll review common UI testing patterns you can use from simple page tests to complex end to end application test suites, all running and scaling automatically within your GitLab CI/CD pipelines.

Why Your Organization Should Embrace The Community Model!
The benefits of DevOps come with a steep learning curve. At State Farm, we believe that in order to successfully transform and create a DevOps culture, we have to embrace the community model—the promotion of (and reliance on) knowledge sharing for both failures and successes, so that teams may learn from the past in order to succeed at scale.

The community model prevents unnecessary waste, enables architecture and code reuse, and allows teams to share best practices. It also enables cultural change. In this presentation we will articulate the community model, share our lessons learned with three years experience operating within it, and explain why and how other organizations should embrace it.

Getting Fuzzy: Blurring The Lines Of Traditional QA & Security Testing
Fuzz testing is a new tool in the development arsenal enabling developers to inject random, malformed data into their application and see what happens! Fuzz testing helps identify bugs and security issues (e.g., unknown vulnerabilities) that traditional testing processes commonly miss as they are focused on known vulnerabilities. In this session, we will define what fuzz testing is, what it is not, why is it important, and how to get up and running quickly. We will also share several real-world examples of how fuzz testing was used to find bugs that otherwise wouldn't have been discovered. We will end this session with demos of two different fuzz testing techniques within the development workflow leveraging GitLab SCM, CI, and Vulnerability Management.

To Go Where No One Has Gone Before…
What does it look like for a team to adopt Docker and GitLab CI/CD when they haven’t been using them previously?

With our first CI/CD run we decided to fully commit ourselves to the GitOps philosophy and during the upcoming years, we hit a lot of obstacles. But, these experiences welded us together even more. By using GitLab we invented a lot of new tools but the most important thing was that we have built it up together, bottom up, with us as individuals.

Follow my talk and see how we started our adventure through the endless space of the GitLab galaxy and listen how we are using our experience, our knowledge and our team friendship to build up creative innovative solutions today. You will see that together with human friendship you can go where no one has gone before.

While the information security space is constantly changing, the United States Army training enterprise operates on a three-year curriculum update cycle. At its inception, the U.S. Army Cyber School recognized this challenge and created a streamlined courseware process using Git to track all instructional material as code. Rather than office documents and static virtual machine snapshots, the school uses markup languages to define instructor and student material, slide decks, and facilitation guides linked to code-driven frameworks to define all training networks, workstations, and activities.

Learn how the Cyber School reduces effort and increases efficiency and transparency necessary to maintain their curriculum relevance and currency.

Inclusion in Technology: Everybody Belongs and Anybody Can Contribute
Based on 10 years of research on cognitive diversity and innovation, we know that safer and more inclusive DevOps teams perform and innovate better. Companies that have more diverse management drive 19% higher revenue due to greater innovation. Racially diverse teams outperform non-diverse ones by 35%. And 67% of job seekers look for evidence of inclusion and equality programs when considering a new company. Yet, leaders still struggle to create an inclusive environment for their teams. In this presentation, Shaaron will share effective and actionable practices to help DevOps teams and managers embody inclusion through everyday interaction and collaboration.

The UK has recently launched ASiMoV, one of the largest projects in high-performance computing (HPC) that ambitiously aims to deliver the world's first high-fidelity simulations of a complete gas-turbine engine during operation. Each simulation must be reproducible and therefore underpinned by a code that is extremely reliable as well as extensively tested....and changes to the code must be trusted to not introduce unintended flaws.

CI/CD is a key enabler to execute ASiMoV and the entire infrastructure heavily relies on Gitlab—from unit testing all the way to website deployment, including the distribution of containerized development environments.

But what if we use the retrospective model with an open source community? If we encourage a safe and open environment to share candid opinions and experiences, a retrospective can be an effective way to solicit feedback beyond the questions asked on the forum.

Four Ways to Further FOSS
Free and open source software has come a long way since its start decades ago. Today it's the default choice for just about every software development project and tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and even Microsoft are using, contributing to, and releasing free and open source software.

With its popularity for infrastructure and bootstrapping development, it's tempting to say that free and open source software has won, but it's premature to make that call. While it may have won software development hearts and minds, there are still billions of others who can benefit more directly from free and open source software and its philosophies.

What steps can we take to help share and improve FOSS? How can we make FOSS go even farther? There are many options, but in this talk I'll share four key areas where each of us can make a difference.

How We Married Policy-as-Code And Compliance With Automation
Let’s talk about compliance—just the word makes people either want to fall asleep or worse, run and hide. Between the development process and the cycle of endless audits, it’s no wonder that people try to avoid this topic at all costs. However, it’s clear that in order to move toward cloud migration and modernization, public sector organizations must transform their existing processes to obtain an Authority to Operate (ATO). In this talk, we’ll walk through the process of how implementing automation took our federal customer from an average ATO time of an average of 3-4 months per application to only 1-2 weeks, and more importantly, why Gitlab is the superior tool to help us do that.

Not a federal customer? That’s ok, too. Managing policy through automation is an important way you can more easily pass any regulatory audit like PCI DSS, HIPAA, and more!

VMware Tanzu Demo: GitOps with TMC and GitLab
With VMware Tanzu Mission Control or rather TMC, you can manage all conformant Kubernetes clusters regardless of where they are running—vSphere, VMware TKG & TKGI, Public clouds (AWS, Azure, Google), Managed services (EKS, AKS, GKE), packaged distributions (OpenShift, Rancher) and DIY.

This short video shows one of Tanzu Mission Control's capabilities GitOps, and how it's used to manage fleets of Kubernetes clusters. Treating the actual clusters as cattle and not as pets is a best practice in the industry.

We will specifically address finer details that are not always covered like creating cluster groups. Then, manage the lifecycle by creating and upgrading Kubernetes clusters. Finally, we apply policies designating the workgroups that can edit a cluster and allow image registries to integrate. By leveraging Gitlab to store TMC files and automatically implement changes in these files.

Essentials of Building a Compliance Program with GitLab
Compliance requires organizations to adopt processes that help them adhere to regulatory and legal requirements. Often, these processes are costly, manual, and cumbersome to implement and maintain. Even organizations that are advanced in compliance maturity still maintain processes within spreadsheets, file storage systems (such as Google Drives or Dropbox) ,and emails—making wading through the documentation required to prove compliance extremely painful.

The good news is that it does not have to be so overwhelming. GitLab can make compliance management friendly, straightforward, and as frictionless as possible.
Learn how GitLab can help make your compliance initiatives seamless:
* Why is achieving compliance so difficult?
* Prerequisites for building your compliance program
* Achieving compliance success with GitLab

Red Hat Demo: Jumpstart Your Development With GitLab and OpenShift
Taking an idea and moving it to production can involve several tools, sometimes a tool for every stage. Managing the integrations, compatibility issues, and different service level agreements can make development more complex and unpredictable. One way to improve predictability of the development environment is by deploying the Gitlab Runner operator for Red Hat® OpenShift® .
In this session, you will learn how GitLab Certified Runner Operator can be installed into OpenShift from the OpenShift Operator Hub. This gives development and SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) teams a simple deployment mechanism for the GitLab Runner as they spin up new projects, allowing you to:
  • Build and not worry about tooling.
  • Enable predictability in your development lifecycle. 
  • Accelerate the process of moving from concept to production.
Deploying GitLab and Red Hat together supports the customer’s journey to Dev/Ops and cloud native application development, while delivering the powerful CI/CD platform needed to build and run your applications.

Managing Software Development in a High Compliance Environment: Getting to SOC-2
Do you have experience with security in your software development process but none at all with compliance? Join this session to hear our journey as we set out to become SOC-2 compliant.

Armed with very little public documentation on how to become SOC-2 compliant, we built SOC-2 procedures around Agile software development and DevOps patterns such as CI/CD and GitOps. Although it typically takes about a year to complete SOC-2 compliance, we obtained certification in less than six months.

You will learn how Agile processes and DevOps can address and outperform traditional methods for managing security and compliance. This talk will empower you to tailor your enterprise compliance needs to your desired software development process.

How to Build a Compromise-Resilient CI/CD
CI/CD is critical to any DevOps operation today, but when attackers compromise it, they get to distribute malicious software to millions of unsuspecting users. We present how Datadog used TUF and in-toto to develop, to the best of our knowledge, the industry’s first end-to-end verified pipeline that automatically builds integrations for the Datadog agent. That is, even if this pipeline is compromised, users should not be able to install malware. We will show a demonstration of our pipeline in production being used to protect users of the Datadog agent, and describe how you can use TUF + in-toto to secure your own pipeline.

Remote to the Rescue: How Virtual Jobs are Saving the World
The benefits of remote work extend far beyond casual wardrobe choices and commutes to the kitchen. In fact, the conversion of physical jobs into virtual roles can support at least 14 of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. If our society truly wants to capitalize on the benefits of remote work to its highest potential, employers need to be ready and willing to accept that the future of work is already here and fortify their organizations to support the virtual workforce.

This presentation covers the 5 socioeconomic benefits of virtual jobs, plus the change management process we need to globally initiate to make remote work equally accessible and permanently sustainable.

Agile Compliance and Risk Operations
Many organizations attempt adopting DevOps and Agile practices only to crash against a compliance wall such as Risk Management Framework (RMF), PCI-DSS, or even GDPR. Even Gene Kim’s “The Unicorn Project'', shows a security officer experiencing a complete breakdown before becoming a DevOps enthusiast. But really, it’s not that hard.

After being a Product Owner on an Agile team, I transferred to a security lead, operating the RMF with an org newly committed to Agile. My team worked through a mindset change without the breakdown, incorporating small compliance goals, integrating with developers, shifting security left, and building cooperative risk ownership.
