Date: 1 - 3 September 2020
Venue: Dubai World Trade Centre

What Will I Learn?

We all have heard about DevSecOps, Shifting Left, Rugged DevOps but there are no clear examples or frameworks available for security professionals to implement in their organization. This hands-on course will teach you exactly that, tools and techniques to embed security as part of the DevOps pipeline. We will learn how unicorns like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Etsy handle security at scale and what we can learn from them to mature our security programs.

In DevSecOps Professional training you will learn how to handle security at scale using DevSecOps practices. We will start off with the basics of the DevOps, DevSecOps and move towards advanced concepts such as Security as Code, Compliance as Code, Configuration management, Infrastructure as code, etc.
