Topic 1: DevSOCOps: Developer best practices with Security content and SIEM Security Operations Centers (SOC’s) are usually staffed with security professionals with backgrounds in incident response or forensics, not folks with development or devops backgrounds. Development teams often don’t have full time security folks or have adversarial relationships with security teams. How do we fix this silo problem and help security folks become developers and developers become security folks? In this talk, I discuss adopting each others best practices and building a methodology to help improve security and development practices to secure the code to the cloud. We’ll discuss CI/CD pipelines for SIEM, code scanning, versioning, and deployment best practices that can be applied for developers looking to get into cybersecurity or security practitioners looking to level up their developer skills.
