CRYSTAL HIRSCHORN: Discovering Risks in Systems Design: Chaos Engineering in Application & Cloud Security

Chaos engineering has significantly increased in popularity over the past 5 years. And yet, chaos engineering as applied to application, information, and cloud security still remains limited.

As we embrace cloud native technologies and application ecosystems that rely heavily on OSS dependencies to build ever increasing complex systems, we become severely challenged in our ability to secure our dev and ops lifecycle.

In this talk, Crystal will look at emerging patterns, concepts, and tools in the industry. Crystal will also highlight some discoveries from running security chaos engineering game days as part of the engineering culture at Snyk.

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • How to secure your DevOps lifecycle
  • Discover emerging chaos engineering tools, patterns and concepts
  • Interesting insights into chaos engineering security
