You Don’t Have a Secure Supply Chain Issue, You have a Software Delivery Issue

President Biden’s Executive Orders are clear: every agency must take action to secure their software supply chains.  But if you have to make major changes to your DevOps practices to secure your software supply chain, you weren’t doing it right in the first place. “Doing DevOps right” means securing not only the software your agency is delivering, but also securing the pipelines themselves and the people who operate and use those pipelines.

Join CloudBees’ Anders Wallgren, VP of Technology Strategy and Sara Gawlinski, Technical Marketing Manager as they present concrete steps you can take to improve your software delivery process that simultaneously builds in resilience and secures your software supply chain.

You will learn:

  • Where supply chain inefficiencies are actually targets
  • The critical role feature flags play in resilience and supply chain security
  • How to use a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) to speed delivery AND enhance your supply chain security

Panel: Harmonizing DevOps/DevSecOps Tools, Processes, and Policies Across the Federal Government

Collaboration is important in many aspects of the federal government. When collaboration from different agencies and organizations begin to happen, agencies must take a step back and see the best practices for this to take place. How do we harmonize our DevOps/DevSecOps tools/processes/policies across agencies so integration of the end product is seamless?

Listen as topic experts dive into the best strategies for harmonizing DevOps and DevSecOps tools, processes, and policies throughout the Federal Government. What lessons have these topic experts learned while harmonizing these tools, processes and policies?

From Fighter Jets to Satellites: Enhancing Software Supply Chain Security  to Thwart Malicious Attackers

DevOps lets developers innovate faster. But some normal DevOps processes can create the opportunity for bad actors or dangerous code to enter your DevOps toolchains and your software applications. Solar Winds, Hafnium, and Codecov are just the latest examples of malicious attacks. Where are the security risks in DevOps processes and how can agencies prevent attacks without slowing down delivery? And how will the new Executive Order impact DevOps practices, particularly for containerized applications? Gain insights into the critical factors to consider to secure your software supply chain.

How to Manage Credentials for Applications and CI/CD tools.

Continuous Integration and delivery (CI/CD) and DevOps, the idea of slicing software into microservices and connecting them through APIs, has become more than a trend, it has become vital to business. It is the only way to enable continuous updates and keep quality high at the same time.  However, in the drive for speed, security can’t be overlooked.
