Security automation is an area that encompasses different practices, such as investigation & response, security compliance, hardening, etc. While security is a prominent topic now more than ever, all of these activities also greatly benefit from automation.
For the second year at AnsibleFest, we will have a channel dedicated to security automation. We talked with channel Lead Massimo Ferrari to learn more about the security automation channel and the sessions within it.
The sessions in this channel will show you how to introduce and consume Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform in different stages of maturity of your security organization as well as using it to share processes through cross-functional teams. Sessions include guidance from customers, Red Hat subject matter experts and certified partners.
What will Attendees learn?
The target audience is security professionals who want to learn how Ansible can support and simplify their activities, and automation experts tasked with expanding the footprint of their automation practice and support security teams in their organization. This track is focused on customer stories and technical guidance on response & remediation, security operations and vulnerability management use cases.
Content is suitable for both automation veterans and security professionals who want to learn how to leverage Ansible 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 every day.
This year, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how automation is a foundational technology for a successful DevSecOps initiative as well as how Ansible can be used to automate container security and endpoint management platforms.
Additionally, for the second year, we’re running our enhanced Ansible security automation workshop that will allow you to practice how Ansible can be used to automate different security platforms to create more efficient and streamlined investigation and remediation processes. Workshops have limited space and fill up quickly, so make sure to register for AnsibleFest 2020 so you can sign up for workshops!
