Security Automation seems to be a growing topic of interest. This year at AnsibleFest we will have a track for Security Automation. We talked with Track Lead Massimo Ferrari to learn more about the Security Automation track and the sessions within it.
Who is this track best for?
This track is intended for professionals in security operations and vulnerability management who want to learn how Ansible can support and simplify their activities, and automation experts tasked to expand the footprint of their automation practice and support security teams in their organization.
What topics will this track cover?
Sessions included in this track cover how to introduce and consume Ansible Automation in different stages of maturity of a security or cross-functional organization. They include guidance from Red Hat subject matter experts, customer stories and technical deep downs from partners that are suitable for both automation veterans and security professionals looking at automation for the first time.
What should attendees expect to learn from this track?
People attending the sessions in this track will learn how Ansible can be leveraged in security environments to support activities like incident investigation and response, compliance enforcement and system hardening. They will learn how Ansible can support SecOps and security analysis teams to streamline and accelerate the activities they perform everyday.
What workshop would you recommend that would compliment the sessions in this track?
Ansible Security Automation Workshop to learn and practice how Ansible can be used to automate different security platforms to create a more efficient and streamlined investigation and remediation processes is a great compliment to this track. However, workshops have limited space and fill up quickly, so make sure to register for AnsibleFest so you can sign up for workshops!
