The lack of collaboration between security, development, and operations teams has been exploited by an increase in infrastructure misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. Infrastructure growth, increases in environmental complexity, and a reliance on traditional security processes that stop short of actually fixing issues, have further exacerbated the limits of security teams in the evolving threat landscape.

Addressing these problems requires a security posture that is more aware of operational requirements, but one that doesn’t put strain on already stretched personnel.

Thomas Hatch, CTO of SaltStack, will present his three key strategies for ‘Ops’ing IT security through SecOps:
- Standardizing elements of the operating system and infrastructure stacks.
- Treating the pieces of development and operations stack’s infrastructure as “code.”
- Automating deployments and the ongoing, day-two mitigation of security vulnerabilities in the production environment.

Applying DevOps principles to the challenge of infrastructure security will enhance the collaboration between security and operations teams to better control and secure IT systems. This, in turn, will lead to enhanced communication, improved security outcomes, continuous compliance and increased ROI.
