Real-World Enterprise Security Experience at KubeSec Summit

For the second time, Aqua will host the KubeSec Enterprise Summit next week, together with our co-hosts AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Red Hat. The event is co-located with KubeCon/CloudNativeCon in Barcelona and will take place on Monday, May 20th. Unlike other co-located events, this full day program focuses on the challenges faced by enterprises with demanding security and compliance requirements when deploying Kubernetes in production. Vendor pitches and lab experiment stories are not part of the agenda.

This summit is a unique opportunity to hear from others who have already deployed Kubernetes to support highly secure, mission-critical applications, as well as from a range of industry and technology experts on security and compliance.

End-user organizations speaking at KubeSec Enterprise Summit include: Schneider Electric, TrueLayer and Adevinta. We also have a great lineup of additional speakers from Aqua and our co-hosts AWS, Microsoft and Google, as well as Cisco, Pivotal, NCC Group, Thales Cloud, Codecentric AG and Rookout. There will be a keynote address by Amy DeMartine, principal analyst at Forrester.

Navigating Through the Day

The event is designed to provide content about trends in Kubernetes security practices, in both formal sessions and via informal 1:1 networking with your peers.

This year, due to a large number of great sessions, we have joint sessions in the morning. After lunch, we will split into two tracks: An Enterprise track that focuses on the business and governance aspects, and an Innovation track that focuses on the more technical aspects of K8s deployment and innovative projects in the ecosystem. Topics include OPA, gVisor, multi-tenancy, and SOC2 compliance. Here is a list of the KubeSec speakers and presentations:
