  • 10:05am – 10:25am Thought Leadership Spotlight featuring CloudPassage: "Dissecting the Security Impact of Agile I.T."
    read more »

    Today's enterprise business leaders demand speed and flexibility in technology delivery. Application development has been decentralized in most enterprises, now scattered across dozens or more independent technology teams. Adoption of cloud infrastructure, agile application development, containerization, devops, on-demand technology delivery, and other agility-oriented technologies enable this trend. While a plus for business units, security and compliance functions are often disrupted dramatically by never before seen levels of distribution, speed, and autonomy in application development and delivery. In this session, Carson Sweet (Founder & CTO of CloudPassage) will discuss trends, challenges, and strategic foundations for evolving security to harmonize with this now-unstoppable evolution in I.T. delivery.
