Providing reliable and secure services doesn’t just happen.  Traditionally, teams of “humans” spent hours monitoring and managing the performance of services without the benefit of computer assistance. But, what happens when the humans are aided with capabilities like analytics, automation and AIOps?

Join us as we discuss:

  • How analytics forms the foundation for great observability
  • Reducing MTTR w/ anomaly detection & cause analysis
  • Reducing cognitive load while increasing employee retention
Thursday, October 26th      |      3 p.m. ET Join us on October 26th for a live roundtable with value stream and software experts focusing on the key questions everyone adopting VSM struggle with and practical examples and tips for successful adoption of VSM. Ask the experts directly yourself by engaging with them through chat and Q&A throughout the roundtable. You will walk away with these takeaways:Where to get started?How to break through the barriers (sticking points)?Getting leadership on board

DevOps webinar Threat detection and response for AWS Fargate

AWS Fargate lets you focus on deploying and managing your applications without worrying about infrastructure. But how do you get visibility into a serverless environment to detect and respond to workload threats?

In this session, Sysdig and AWS will discuss how to tackle the unique challenges of securing serverless environments. You’ll learn how the right tooling can help you meet your cloud security goals, address compliance requirements and reduce business risk.

DevSecOps Roadmap: Building Security Into Workflows the Right Way

Nick Cavalancia – Techvangelism and Mark Townsend, Vice President of Professional Services at Invicti Security
Live online November 03 at 12:00 p.m

Application security has come a long way. From automation to increased AppSec budgets, the landscape of application security has changed dramatically. Yet even businesses who think they are doing AppSec and DevSecOps well can’t be entirely confident, with organisations becoming increasingly vulnerable due to the sheer number of web assets they have – or think they have – to secure.

With it being more imperative than ever for development and security teams to gain complete visibility into all their applications — including those that are lost, forgotten, or hidden – it’s crucial that they do it in the right way.

But what does the right way look like? In episode 2 of Invicti’s Mastering Application Security series, Nick Cavalancia and Mark Townsend are here to show you. From discussing how businesses can create a DevSecOps roadmap that truly works, to diving into how teams can integrate application security into their DevOps pipelines the right way, join them to hear:

– Why many organizations struggle with gaining full visibility of what applications they need to secure
– How to navigate the complexity of integrating security tools within short production cycles
– How critical software issues can be identified and addressed at the appropriate stage of the SDLC
– How to inspire DevOps and DevSecOps teams to grow the right development culture that fosters an environment where AppSec can truly thrive.


As cyber actors continue to find new ways to exploit vulnerabilities and evade detection, organizations are finding it more and more difficult to protect against destructive attacks.

AT&T Managed Extended Detection and Response (XDR) builds on our decades of expertise in managed security services to help protect your assets around the clock.

Attend Enriching Third-Party Risk Processes with Targeted Risk Intelligence on Thursday October 20th at 1pm Eastern.
