In this panel we will delve into the technical and cultural challenges of integrating security into development and explore how Platform Engineering and DevSecOps can enhance security by design.

There is a growing trend to shift security responsibilities left to developers, who are not necessarily experts in security nor infrastructure. At the same time, security threats continue to increase and pose significant risks, particularly for regulated industries and public sector companies.

This panel will explore the typical challenges—both technical and cultural—faced in integrating security into the development process. We will discuss how Platform Engineering can play a pivotal role in addressing these challenges and how to enhance security by design with insights from DevSecOps practitioners and Platform Engineering experts.

  • Bryan Finster (Defense Unicorns, co-author of Modern Cybersecurity: Tales from the Near-Distant Future)
  • Hila Fish (DevOps Engineer, public speaker)
  • Hope Lynch (Sr Director, Platform, Cloudbees)
  • Paul Nashawaty (Practice Leader and Lead Principal Analyst, Futurum Group)
