Hello – I’m Dwayne Melancon, Tripwire’s CTO.  On February 26, 2014 at 10:40am, I’ll be moderating a panel at the RSA Conference.  The panel is called “DevOps / Security Myths Debunked,” and I’ll be joined by a great lineup of panelists:

  • Joshua Corman, CTO of Sonatype – @joshcorman
  • Nick Galbreath, VP of Engineering at IPONWEB – @ngalbreath
  • Gene Kim, Author of “The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win” – @realgenekim
  • David Mortman, Chief Security Architect and Distinguished Engineer – @Mortman

These folks are all not only very adept at security, they are very involved in the DevOps movement and knowledgeable about the challenges and opportunities as we bring together information security with rapid deployment and development models.

I Want Your Help

In order to make this panel more topical, I would love to hear from you about:

  • As a security professional, what concerns do you have about DevOps?
  • If you are considering DevOps in your organization, what are your questions?  What scares you?
  • What myths or legends have you heard about why DevOps is difficult or problematic from a security perspective?
  • If you’re in the thick of DevOps already, what topics should we discuss to help people who aren’t doing DevOps yet?
  • Anything else on this topic you’d like to know?

Please think about these areas and send in your questions or topic suggestions.  You can do that in the comments below, or send them to me on Twitter (@thatdwayne), or email them to “highperformer at”

Thanks in advance for your help, and I look forward to seeing you at RSA if you’re headed there at the end of the month.
