Session: Running FaaS with Scissors

Taking a DevSecOps mindset has created many opportunities to nudge organizations into improving how we create secure code. The security and DevOps landscape has continued to evolve with many exciting improvements in the past year. In this talk, we’ll cover the new methods available utilizing serverless and Function as as Service (FaaS) technologies. We’ll discuss how you can pave a speedy road for app teams to develop while constructing guard rails using OpenFaaS. Utilizing containerized security tools allows for dramatically quicker and more consistent assessments of both running and static code. By using the techniques discussed, you can change security testing from an occasional point in time exercise to continuously testing with fast feedback loops. Having created these at past employers, we bring real-world experience of creating fast and agile testing automation to AppSec teams.
