Automating OpenShift secure container deployment at Experian

Jon Deeming, VP at Experian, will present how automation can ensure that security policy is consistently deployed into production OpenShift container environments. He will share some of the lessons learned in Experian’s move to containers. The dynamic nature of containers requires thinking through all the attack vectors in a new environment and creates the need for behavior-based security technology. This new technology needs to work with the system primitives, labels, resources and other metadata to maintain the desired security posture. At the same time, it’s critical to dive deeply into the Kubernetes architecture to understand how to properly deploy resilient services. Understanding the network and system behavior of pods and containers will enable DevOps and security teams to detect suspicious behaviors. This session will provide attendees with a framework for evaluating container security and advice for securing business critical services and protecting sensitive data.
