Senior Information Security Consultant F-Secure Consulting

BIOGRAPHY

I started at MWR InfoSecurity, now F-Secure Consulting, straight out of university at the end of 2015, where I studied Computer Engineering. I used this base knowledge to start out as a mobile consultant where I did everything from Mobile application pentesting, breaking IoT devices, and rooting POS devices. During this time, I also completed OSCP and gathered a bit more of a holistic view on the cyber security footprint a company has. This lead me down the avenue of focusing on DevOps and the security surrounding the people processes and technology involved there. In my spare time I do triathlons and walk my dogs.

Securing DevOps: Common misconceptions

DevOps has been a big topic in recent years, however as with any new technology that is found in the market, there are often several common security misconceptions that occur. With most companies fully converted to the agile developmental approach, the need to further enhance the flow has naturally evolved from this. DevOps – the collaboration and almost unification of the developer and the operations teams – has been the resolution to the “speed to market” conundrum that companies are faced with.

However, with new DevOps support infrastructure, which is constantly being introduced, companies can often lose oversight of the unique implementation thereof by their various development teams. This infrastructure is often a cause for concern, where a compromise in any stage of a pipeline, would often lead to a compromise of the application associated to the pipeline.

This talk focuses on the DevOps supporting infrastructure and the importance of gaining a holistic security view thereof. MWR has developed a standardised testing methodology that aims to ease the confusion surrounding the testing of, and approach to a DevOps pipeline from a security focused mindset.

In this talk:

A discussion on newly defined DevOps vulnerabilities

A discussion of real world attacks on a misconfigured pipeline.

A new model that can be used to classify and test a bespoke DevOps environment.
