A phased approach to building security automation into your CI/CD

Wednesday, April 25, 2018
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Mahesh Babu

So your engineering team is using CI / CD and churning out code at a frenetic pace. It is unclear where the risk is, what controls to focus on and where in the SDLC to introduce those controls. Mahesh will introduce a practical, risk-based approach to introducing security automation into the CI / CD pipeline to surface critical issues, shorten remediation time without bottlenecking the release. Finally, he will touch on the concepts of interactive analysis (IAST) and runtime protection (RASP) as key tools in this approach.

Mahesh Babu is the Head of Product Strategy at Contrast Security and is responsible for growing Contrast Protect. He takes every opportunity to tell everyone how Contrast has fundamentally changed application security for the first time since he started working in security 10+ years ago. Mahesh has seen the industry evolve as a researcher, consultant, and practitioner within a large bank. He began his career as a security researcher at the CERIAS center at Purdue University. He then went on to build and scale large security & privacy programs a Senior Manager & architect for HSBC Information Security & Risk. He also spent time as a consultant at Deloitte and Booz & Company. Mahesh has a BS in Computer Science and MS in Information Security from Purdue University and an MBA from Duke University.

Science and technology are critical drivers of today’s global innovation economy. More and more companies–across all industry sectors–are seeking people with computer science (CS) and computer engineering skills.

In the U.S., there will be 1.4 million CS-related jobs by 2020, yet U.S. college graduates are expected to fill less than a third of those jobs. For American youth, this means an unfortunate mismatch between education and opportunity that we must solve by bringing together professionals from across the CS industry.

By increasing access to CS for all youth as early as possible, we will help them prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow and give them the opportunity to become creators of technology and the world’s future innovators.

Suggested Parking:

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin (ideally on the 3rd floor) in any spot marked PROS Reserved (but not PROS Priority Reserved), taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage (if needed) and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the right just before you reach the elevator bank.
