Bio

Darin has been working full time in the software development space for the past 13 years and my experience is fairly broad and unique. Over the years he has been a founder, manager, team lead and software engineer, in various sectors, and in teams of different shapes and sizes. Darin’s first serious foray into the tech industry was when he started his first software development business with the support of ICT incubator MambaVen, back when he was 17.

Darin’s interests are varied, though he particularly enjoys business and technology – so he’s naturally passionate about building high quality, secure software that creates real value. Darin is particularity interested in cloud computing, software security and the processes that drive high quality software development, and much of the work he’s done over the years has revolved around these areas.

Darin tries to engage with and participate in broader IT community whenever possible and attend community meetups whenever he can. Darin is a member of the OWASP, the ISACA and the IITPSA. Darin also chaired the Western Cape chapter of the IITPSA for 3 years.

Talk: DevOps and the Future of InfoSec

DevOps is making organizations more efficient by breaking down barriers but is also creating new security risks for them & their stakeholders. In this talk Darin delve into key ways to bolster security culture & secure process and technology while conserving efficiencies gained by doing DevOps.

DevOps is making organizations more efficient by breaking down barriers between software development and IT operations teams, but this new way of working also creates potential for new security risks and vulnerabilities.

To complicate things, DevOps is still misunderstood by many and information security isn’t always considered upfront. Furthermore, the ROI for ‘data bandits’ is ever increasing as people are becoming increasingly dependent on information technology at scale.

So how do we conserve efficiencies gained by doing DevOps while securing process and technology, and supporting a security conscious culture? It’s a tough question to answer… but in this talk Darin Morris will delve into ways to begin to efficiently turn DevOps into DevSecOps.
