The Cutting Edge Schedule for CloudNativeSecurityCon 2023 is Now Available

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, released the two-day schedule for CloudNativeSecurityCon North America 2023 happening in Seattle, Washington from February 1-2, 2023. Attendees will be able to choose from 72 sessions for all levels of technologists.

As a developer-first conference, the co-chairs and program committee aim to give room to breakthrough technologies and highlight advances in modern security approaches versus incremental solutions. Topics of sessions and lightning talks presented by expert practitioners include architecture and policy, secure software development, supply chain security, identity and access, forensics, and more.

CloudNativeSecurityCon North America 2023 co-chairs, Emily Fox, Security Engineer at Apple, Liz Rice, Chief Open Source Officer at Isovalent, and Brandon Lum, Software Engineer at Google, led a program committee of 49 to review 273 submissions that will provide a diverse perspective on the state of cloud native security.

“The cloud native community always has shown a deep concern for and resulting expertise in open source security. CNCF has invested in ensuring that all graduated and incubating projects have adequate resources and funding for security audits to improve their security posture,” said Priyanka Sharma, Executive Director, CNCF. “CloudNativeSecurityCon will be the place for developers to learn practical skills about security from other developers. We look forward to the insights that will be shared and the collective enhancement of our knowledge at CloudNativeSecurityCon next year.”

The community-curated schedule will feature sessions from open source community members, including:

  • Learn by Hacking: how to run a 2500 node kubernetes CTF
  • Sharing Security Secrets: How to Encourage Security Advocates
  • Securing the Superpowers: Who Loaded That eBPF Program?
