DevOps & IT Transformation in the Government and Public Sector


https://www.devopstoolingexpo.com/


Public sector organisations across the UK have high ambitions for digital transformation & DevOps initiatives. The environment in which Public Sector IT operates has changed rapidly in the past few years, meaning extreme pressures to respond quickly to clients’ needs and get their products to market faster.


James Stewart, consultant and former deputy CTO at GDS

Title: Tools of change or tools for change?

"Adopting Github right at the start of the Government Digital Service felt like a small step but quickly turned out to be an vital element of establishing the organisation's culture and impact.Effectively choosing tools, investing in them and making full use of partnerships around them is an essential element of shaping any organisation. Doing that well in organisations that are dealing with constant change can be challenging, but is an opportunity to make sure we really know what we're trying to achieve.In this talk, I'll talk about some of the challenges, some examples and some principles to navigate the changing landscape of development tools."


Andrew Martin, DevOps Lead in the UK Government

Title: Insecure Containers. Continuous Defence Against Open Source Exploits.

"Open Source Software underpins the internet and many enterprises, but has repeatedly proven itself vulnerable to accident and tampering. High impact exploits lead us to question our unreserved trust in Open Source, and the wisdom of its proliferation is being questioned. As we fight to continuously secure millions of servers against these waves of attacks, have we found a crucial panacea in containers?This talk examines the anatomy of major vulnerabilities with examples and live demos, demonstrates their applicability to containerised applications, and explores container native security tooling throughout the pipeline."
