Adding Security to the DevOps Pipeline
With the speed of modern software development, code is being pushed into production faster than ever…. and with it Security Vulnerabilities. Most of these vulnerabilities stem from a small set of common programming errors, which can be easily resolved.
This presentation will go over the different security scans which can be added to your pipeline, and how they lead towards more secure code. It will cover Static Application Security Testing, Dynamic Application Security Testing, Container Scanning, Dependency Scanning, and License Scanning.
