2. OWASP DevSecOps Maturity Model

From a startup to a multinational corporation the software development industry is currently dominated by agile frameworks and product teams and as part of it DevOps strategies.

It has been observed that during implementation, security aspects can be missed. The OWASP DevSecOps Maturity Model, which is presented in the talk, shows security measures which are applied when using DevOps strategies and how these can be prioritized. With the help of DevOps strategies security can also be enhanced. Under the guidance of the forward-looking DevSecOps Maturity Model, appropriate principles and measures can defend against attacks.

In this session Timo will give an introduction and answer questions like when to use OWASP SAM and when and how to use DSOMM.

OUR SPEAKER: Timo Pagel, DevSecOps Consultant

Timo has been in the IT industry for over fifteen years. After being a system administrator and web developer in his early times, he became involved in OWASP. He now advises his clients on DevOps security, either hands on or as a trainer, with the focus on security test automation for software and infrastructure.

Event: AppSec, DevSecOps, and IoT - Oh My!

Chapter: Northern Virginia

Time: 18:30 (US/Eastern)


Abstract: It doesn't take much to realize that the world of IoT has exploded. How many now have a Ring doorbell and are using Alexa to control their homes? Sensors, indicators and trackers are everywhere and many times we are not even aware of it. But in a world where there is an ever-increasing threat landscape and more attacks then ever, where does security fit in? How do we balance convenience, speed and data integrity? And when we realize that behind every device is an application that will process that data and then communicate to another application, how do we ensure that those applications are secure? This is why Application Security and DevSecOps are so important in this space and make all the difference between success and failure.

Bio: Rob is currently a Global Application Security Sales Evangelist for HCL providing thought leadership for the application security space, particularly as it relates to DevOps and DevSecOps initiatives. Prior to this role, Rob was with IBM for 14 years with roles in Application Security Evangelism, Worldwide Sales Enablement, Tiger Teams and Field Services for the Management and Platform Segment offerings in IBM Cloud.

Rob has spoken at numerous events and conferences, including Evanta CISO Summits, THINK, InterConnect, DevloperConnect, IBM Top Guns and many customer events. Prior to IBM, Rob spent 13 years with 5 different companies working as a configuration management specialist with an emphasis on Rational tooling. Rob graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and is an avid fan of college football. When not at work, Rob enjoys spending time with his family, serving with his church, running and cycling.

For each vulnerability you find, you’ll get points added to your score and climb the live leaderboard. Top scorers get prizes, but all players have fun!
