We've got a real situation on our hands. We have organizations that are cranking out unsecure code in the application development process. People are borrowing open-source code from various locations on the web. APIs are being written that are easily hacked. We've tasked DevOps to create some amazing things but at a breakneck speed. Privacy and Security are lost when speed is the chief factor in developing new technologies.

Our panel will highlight the pitfalls we discovered in 2021. We'll also share some of the success stories folks are having and how you can make some changes to your processes or tools to make DevOps more engaging, rewarding, and fun!

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.

Anders Eknert
Developer Advocate, Styra

Anders Eknert has a long background in software development and security. Previously in his career, Anders focused primarily on identity systems. He has spent more recent years in the emerging domain of policy as code where his interests include the organizational and people aspects of the space as well as the technical challenges. As a member of the team that builds the Open Policy Agent (OPA), Anders has a ringside view into the fast growing space of security defined as policy - policy that exists not just in PDF documents and Google Docs - but policy that is testable, version controlled and reviewed like any other code

As a developer advocate, Anders spends much of his time thinking about the developer experience in all interactions with software systems, a topic he feels has largely been ignored in the security space.
