9:00 AM – 5:00 PM 

Keith Hoodlet, Manager of DevSecOps, Thermo Fisher Scientific; James Wickett, Head of Research, Signal Sciences; and more to be announced!

Industry leaders will discuss the origins of the DevOps movement—and how this movement has recently been adopted within security teams in the form of “DevSecOps”. In working through the genesis of DevOps, attendees will see how this movement has shaped the way businesses think about the people, processes, and technologies around developing software and delivering value to customers.

We’ll then move through how the practices of DevOps are being adopted within security teams today. The session will discuss elements of the DevSecOps Manifesto, and how these elements can be applied to the ways in which we perform security today. From this, attendees will come away with practical knowledge they can implement to change the ways security is performed within their organizations.

Finally, we’ll share how the DevSecOps movement will reshape business practices into the future—including what opportunities lie just beyond the horizon with new technologies that are just now coming online. Attendees will benefit from knowing what industry leaders are considering adopting in the near future—allowing them to get an early start in learning about nascent technologies before they need them.

InfoSec World Tech Labs are returning for 2019!

What They Are

These 2-3 hour sessions are meant to be hands-on guided learning for students. The goal is to teach students new skills by allowing them to work through real-life offensive or defensive simulations. Your class can teach how to exploit a “system,” how to hunt down an attacker, how to look for evidence once an attacker has compromised a system, and more. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination!

What We're Looking For

Each Tech Lab instructor will lead the class through a set of (instructor-provided) written instructions. Your job—in addition to creating the labs—is to give each student personal attention and help guide them when they have questions, get stuck, or just need a new idea or method to approach the problem.

InfoSec World attendees range from very technical with strong offensive skills to those who were thrust into security from some other, even managerial, discipline. As you submit your Tech Lab proposal, design challenges that can be accomplished by various levels of skill set; we want to ensure that anyone who attends your session can accomplish tasks and learn something, regardless of beginning technical ability.

The lab needs to be accomplished within the given time period (2-3 hours, you will choose your preferred length on the submission form). We are not looking for labs so challenging they cannot be completed in the designated timeframe. Based on past experience, we know that people like to be able to finish a project; allowing them to do so will increase their satisfaction and your evaluation scores.

How To Submit

On the CFP submission form, you will submit only a title, abstract, and bullet points describing your lab. If your lab is chosen, you must be prepared to submit a full outline/agenda by October 1, 2018.

Please note that if your lab is chosen you will be required to provide the entire environment for the lab, including but not limited to infrastructure (including connectivity), configured virtual machines, providing the lab on a USB, or any other desired delivery method.

Submit your proposal now!
