DevSecCon Conference Returns to London for Third Year

DevSecCon Conference Returns to London for Third Year

The world’s only conference dedicated to DevSecOps – the practice of building security into development processes – will return to London for a third time later this month as IT professionals grapple with ever more complex challenges and sophisticated security threats.

DevSecCon will bring DevOps, Development and Security professionals together in an extended two-day conference and training sessions, with three tracks and hands-on workshops led by key industry figures and cutting-edge practitioners.

Spanning every aspect of the development process, delegates can expect to leave armed with a greater understanding of security as code, be inspired by keynotes and workshops from leading figures in DevOps, Security and Development, get a first-hand look at the very latest DevSecOps technologies and innovations and interact and connect with peers, thought leaders and those leading advances in the sector.

Building on 2016’s agenda, which covered the core concepts of DevSecOps in short lightening talks, the 2017 schedule includes extensive, in-depth sessions delivered by industry experts including keynote speaker Daniel Cuthbert, Global Head of Cyber Security Research, Santander. Cuthbert will address the ongoing spectre of hacking in his address, “From whistles to nation state and why Developers are now more important than ever before”.

Dinis Cruz, CISO of the PhotoBox group will give day two’s thought-provoking keynote, “Creating a graph-based security organisation”. Packed with practical examples, the presentation will investigate ways to create a modern and empowering security organisation.

Other speakers include Liz Rice, Technology Evangelist at Aqua Security, Justin Calmus, VP of Hacker Success and Research at HackerOne and Fraser Scott, Senior Cloud Security Operations engineer at Capital One.

Francois Raynaud, DevSecCon Founder said this year’s conference and its core message of implementing security within the development process is more important than ever, “The recent Equifax hack, which exploited a known Struts2 vulnerability, demonstrates the value and significance of DevSecOps in the modern digital landscape. Hacking is front page news, attacks are increasing and threats more sophisticated. As the only conference of its kind in the world, DevSecCon is committed to bringing experts and practitioners together and giving developers the tools they need to challenge the status quo and make continuously secure development a reality.”

DevSecCon 2017 will take place at CodeNode, London 19-20 October, 2017. Find out more at
