In this session, Chet Burgess, Principal Engineer at Cisco, will chronicle how the Developer Experience team for the Cloud & Compute Business Unit helps to improve security for their containerized applications.

As Cisco increasingly used containers for both SaaS and on-premise software, they needed to adapt the processes and tooling used to secure their products. The Developer Experience team leveraged automation to streamline security checks and remediation within existing DevOps processes, making the software development teams they supported more efficient.

In this session, Chet will discuss:
- The role of a Developer Experience team in making developers more productive
- Why the Software Bill of Materials was a critical foundation for security
- How the team automated security checks from development through to ship/production
- How they complied with internal mandates for OSS compliance

This session is appropriate for all skill levels and will appeal to those looking to spearhead new DevSecOps initiatives within their organization. Attendees will take away proven strategies for improving the software development process with actionable recommendations on how to implement them.
