DevSecOps Public Sector Accelerated ATO Initiative

October 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

DevSecOps and the need to accelerate your ATO: Does it work for the Government today?

As Agencies develop more online services and systems to meet the mission of the Government, their appetite and need to develop and deploy applications rapidly continues to grow. Many Agencies are embracing DevSecOps and cloud services as a way to release these applications quickly; however, the need to meet compliance standards (i.e. RMF, STIG, FISMA, HIPAA, etc.) to obtain their Authority to Operate (ATO) can slow down the process, or lead to exhaustive POAMs.

We have invited a panel of experts from the Industry including: Dr. Ron Ross – Fellow, NIST, Ron Thompson – Chief Data Officer and Associate CIO, NASA and Steven Pruskowski – CISA, ST&E Federal Lead, DHS, Nick Sinai – Former US Deputy CTO and Insight Venture Management, LLC to discuss how Government agencies take advantage of rapid development/deployment techniques, such as DevSecOps, while meeting their ATO and security requirements in the same timely fashion. These distinguished panelists will highlight real world examples of how this is being achieved in Govt today, while addressing live questions for you, our participants.

We launched GovDevSecOpsHub to focus on the next evolution of application development, DevSecOps, which brings cybersecurity teams and tools into the development process sooner so that applications are more secure and safeguarded against cyber threats.

In  GovDevSecOpsHub we’ll look at the evolution from traditional software and application development to the DevOps model. We’ll talk about the importance of moving from DevOps to DevSecOps. We’ll highlight the technologies and cultural changes necessary to make this shift happen. And we’ll profile government organizations and executives that are the “boots on the ground” as the government pivots towards the DevSecOps model.
