Chaos & Security
Feb 19, 2019 - DevOps Minneapolis
For our February meetup, we have three great speakers and two great talks for you! We'll be looking at chaos and security.
First up, Matt Schillerstrom (Target) & Chuck Rostance (Code42), organizers of the Twin Cities Chaos Engineering meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Twin-Cities-Chaos-Engineering-Community/), will give a lightning talk about how to get started with Chaos Engineering (asking for forgiveness with leadership, testing in production or not, GameDays, and what tools are out there for running experiments).
Then we'll hear from James Renken of Let's Encrypt (https://letsencrypt.org/):
Title: Rodents of Unusual Size
Description: Let's look at some attacks on infrastructure that you and your customers implicitly rely on. Systems, both technical and business, that are outside the scope of your control, scans, and models - but not your attackers'. Then let's consider some defenses without destroying your ability to trust.
Speaker: James Renken has been a sysadmin on Internet-facing infrastructure for over 20 years. He's currently a Site Reliability Engineer at Let's Encrypt (a free, automated, and open TLS certificate authority) and practices consumer law on the side. In his spare time, he enjoys crocodile dentistry and jetpack racing.
