Security First — The Benefits of Integrating Security Tools into Your GitOps Workflow

GitOps allows us to empower engineers to test and deploy workloads independent of the infrastructure teams. Most of the time, these workloads focus on the application stack. Thus, security is often perceived and integrated as a secondary element in our deployment pipeline. This will result in gaps in our security scanning.

However, GitOps best practices are highly similar to security best practices and goals, which makes it easier to achieve both with the same tooling.
This talk will explore the overlap between Security and GitOps processes. Through a demo, Anais will highlight the benefits for engineers of integrating security tools into your GitOps workflow.
