Conference location: Online

In order to build and run applications securely there are key architectural components that need to be in place. Without infrastructure components like proper encryption, standard authentication methods and logging standards developers are challenged to build secure applications. Without proper pre-production testing and event logging / analysis knowing if an application is under attack and should you worry when it is becomes virtually impossible. With the advent of containers and the ability to scale application across different platforms the problem only gets compounded.


This session will present the key architectural components your company should have in place that will allow you to build, run and monitor applications more securely.
