DevSecOps Leaders: The Conversation Continues Online, May 7th

Over the past several years our team at Sonatype has organized and hosted more than 30 DevSecOps Leadership Forums (DLF) around the world.

When we held our very first DLF event, the goal was simple: gather technology innovators from regional business communities to share experiences and learn from one another as they work to embrace DeSecOps patterns and practices to help digitally transform their organizations.

This year, under COVID-19 circumstances, we’re hosting the DLF in a virtual and online format. However, the goal is exactly the same!

Here’s a sneak peek at the topics that will be discussed this Thursday.
