According to many security analysts, in 2022, the number of software supply chain attacks is expected to quadruple versus this year’s total. Recent high-profile breaches like SolarWinds, Codecov, Kaseya and Microsoft Exchange Server highlight both the reach and the gravity of these attacks.

Meanwhile, the use of Kubernetes as an orchestrator grew 50% from last year, yet nearly half of organizations say they have delayed moving an application into production due to security concerns.

In this webinar, we will discuss the considerations, limitations and DevSecOps best practices when building out an automation strategy for securing K8s workloads.

We will specifically cover:

  • The shared responsibility approach to cybersecurity in the software supply chain
  • Creating and scaling automation frameworks
  • Enhancing the security of Kubernetes workloads with Instrumentation

At the end of the session, we will present a secure, scalable, enterprise-ready Kubernetes workload architecture that you can start defending with today.
