This 30 minute “Lunch & Learn” webinar will be a crash course on in Kubernetes and security.

Kubernetes is Google’s answer to container orchestration and some of the tools it provides developers are indistinguishable from black magic. However, with the power that it provides it also can let you fall into some security holes that are hard to climb out of.

In this presentation we’ll go through those pitfalls, along with some huge security benefits that using such a fluid containerized environment can provide you. Learn lessons from the head of security of a recently acquired financial tech startup who is all-in on Kubernetes and has the bruises and badges of honor to show for it.

For a DevOps practitioner or enthusiast this will allow you to walk a way with a better understanding of Kubernetes as a whole, and how to secure it right from the ground up. Learn to monitor your infrastructure properly for malicious behavior, how to respond to incidents, and some simple best practice security hygiene.
