In today’s ever-evolving threat landscape, traditional security measures are no longer sufficient to protect modern organizations. DevSecOps has emerged as a powerful approach to integrate security into the software development lifecycle from the beginning and also ensures that applications running in production are equally protected.

This presentation explores the concept of shifting security right, with a specific focus on utilizing Security Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and Chaos Engineering to verify the effectiveness of security controls. Those two combined help align security and operations teams to establish a proactive security posture.

In addition, they provide a novel approach to ensuring the resilience and effectiveness of security controls by simulating real-world attack scenarios, and verifying how organisations can identify vulnerabilities, validate incident response capabilities, and optimize security measures.
