Explaining the link to DevSecOps processes

Visibility and transparency are key principles of DevSecOps. The shifting left of security knowledge is necessary for building secure applications, but can leave developers feeling overwhelmed.

In this talk, we’ll cover the ways Elastic fosters a free and open approach to security that supports developers, Site Resiliency Engineers (SREs) and security practitioners. Specifically, we’ll discuss:

  1. The open-source origins of Elastic and the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana).
  2. The features of Elasticsearch that help support developers in securing their ELK deployments.
  3. How the integration of Observability tools such as Applications Performance Monitoring (APM), Real User Monitoring (RUM) and Synthetic Monitoring, and Security practitioner tools such as Elastic SIEM and integrations allow access to the data needed to monitor applications at all levels.
  4. How Elastic Security Labs can help support the community by taking a transparent and developer-focused approach to security-research.
