I will be speaking this Thursday, September 15th, from 12:15 – 1:15 p.m. at the Privacy.Security.Risk 2016 conference in San Jose, CA, sponsored by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). The topic will be “Achieving Container Security at Scale.” Containers are an exciting technology that show great promise in improving efficiency, scalability, and repeatability in cloud service development environments. However, as with any new technology, it also presents a unique set of security risks that must be addressed. As a company on the “bleeding edge” in use of this technology at scale, we believe we are in a unique position to help the security and compliance communities adopt the best security standards possible around this technology without sacrificing its benefits. My session will discuss our vision for use of container technology, the current security issues we have observed that require industry remedies to help us and our peers achieve necessary scale, and our own ideas for helping to address these issues both in the immediate and longer term. If you are attending the conference this week, I hope you’ll be able to join me.
