Why container security isn’t about security of containers

As organisations look to move to containers, many think of containers as “another type of virtualisation”, and assume that the key questions to ask are the same as those for VMs. This session will explain how container security is much more than just “execution isolation”, and goes to the heart of the CI/CD and DevOps lifecycle. A true understanding of container security also considers processes, tools and – vitally important, but often neglected – culture. Without a true integration into business processes, and an embracing of automation as central to security, container adoption can prove more damaging than beneficial: this session will share examples of how it can work.
