Keynote with Burr Sutter: Trusting your software supply chain (Part 1)  (A1)

Trusting your software supply chain

Security has become a top of mind concern for Dev, Ops and Sec teams. Consuming seemingly random open source libraries from the internet such as Struts or Log4J has become problematic, especially for teams that do not have the automation to quickly respond to a supply chain threat. In this session, we will walk through Red Hat's vision for a Trusted Software Supply Chain and a series of demonstrations of technologies and techniques to help you improve your security posture.

Burr Sutter, Red Hat,

A lifelong developer advocate, community organizer and technology evangelist, Burr Sutter is a featured speaker at technology events around the globe, from Bangalore to Brussels and Berlin to Beijing (and most parts in between). He is currently Red Hat’s Global Director of Developer Experience. A Java Champion since 2005 and former president of the Atlanta Java User Group, Burr founded the DevNexus conference, now the largest Java event in the U.S. with the aim of making access to the world’s leading software educators affordable to the developer community. When not speaking abroad, Burr is also the passionate creator and orchestrator of highly-interactive live demo keynotes at Red Hat Summit, the company’s premier annual event.
