In the past 5 years Continuous Delivery has gained much attention. Its benefits of rapid, iterative change are well understood, all the way up to board level. However, CD often encounters an adversary; Security. Protection of data and computer systems seems to stand on concepts like infrequent change, segregation of duties and bureaucratic heavyweight process . But are CD and Security really at odds?
We don’t think so. Whilst we’ll show you the dangers of unfettered CD pipelines and the risk of letting security spread fear. We will also share ways in which we’ve managed to balance speed and security in our pipelines–considering both the technical and organisational aspects. In fact we hope you’ll see that not only is there a way, but it’s a far better way.
