DSC Weekly 13 February 2024


  • Developing high-quality software can quickly devolve into a chaotic, unproductive mess without the proper processes and frameworks in place. Organizations require not only the right coding tools but also effective testing and deployment solutions to ensure the highest quality software is what hits the market. The proliferation of generative AI, open-source technologies and low-code/no-code tools can streamline and enhance developer tasks but only if they are applied as part of a bigger strategy that empowers developers to innovate more efficiently. Tune into the Software Development Methodologies summit to hear leading experts share the latest development tools and trends to smooth over and enhance what quickly becomes a complicated process.
  • As cloud adoption has become the norm, cyber threats are a constant concern. Cloud detection and response (CDR) is growing in significance, serving as a vital means to monitor and remediate cloud security issues while safeguarding valuable assets. This new acronym in the detection and response category is designed to address cybersecurity threats and incidents that target cloud environments and support cloud-based tools. But as CDR is an emerging technology, security teams must understand it first. At the Best Practices for Cloud Detection and Response Summit, hear advice from industry leaders, experts and practitioners to help evaluate CDR products and create an implementation plan with confidence.
