We're back! After quite a hiatus, the combined Docker NYC Meetup & Kubernetes & Cloud Native New York Meetup will be going virtual. Please join us later this month to talk Kubernetes Security & Compliance with our friends from Tufin & Elastisys.|
Developers & operators in todays digital world are facing an ever-increasing set of regulatory requirements, security challenges & privacy concerns. In addition to constant attacks on IT assets there is growing legal pressure to deliver & maintain regulatory guidelines in our networked world. Requirements such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GDPR or SOC2 are becoming the pre-requisite of any operation in various industries.
Modern Cloud Native architectures & Kubernetes provide tools to address these demands, but the knowledge of these tools & methods are not widely understood. Today what is needed most is guidance on what exists & how best to use the right resources to meet the security & compliance requirements while still benefiting from the speed & agility Cloud Native environments offer.
Johan Tordsson of Elastisys & Colby Dyess of Tufin will lead this session on Kubernetes Security & Compliance & provide a deep dive on security development tools, open source Kubernetes services, collaboration strategies to meet these growing needs.
Colby Dyess is a former developer, turned product manager, who helps organizations successfully transition to cloud-native platforms & adopt DevOps practices. He currently leads cloud strategy at Tufin the leading provider of security policy automation for 2,100+ customers globally. Colby will share examples the tools, processes & tips that have enabled DevOps, CloudOps & Security teams meet business requirements without slowing down developers.
Johan Tordsson, Founder & CTO at Elastisys, received his PHD in Computer Science from Umea University & prior to founding Elastisys he led research on automated self-managed cloud infrastructure with this experience leading to his deep understanding of Cloud, cloud native & Kubernetes & thus the founding of Elastisys. Over the last two years Johan has guided Elastisys in developing a deep understanding of regulatory compliances & the open source solutions to meet these needs. His work has resulted in the development of Compliant Kubernetes (CK8s), a distribution of Kubernetes that meets the most important compliance requirements. In this session Johan will share his insight & addressing this need & the Open Source resources available to all of us.
Attendees of this Meetup will come away with a good understanding of Security & Compliance needs, & the solutions for delivering & operating Cloud Native solution.
