Presented by: Jacob Kitchel, Industrial Defender
Abstract: This presentation will review useful concepts and tools that can be applied by DevOps team with “Controlled Remediation”. We’ll demonstrate the application of non-security, system administration, deployment, monitoring and change tracking using tools to achieve controlled remediation. This will build a foundation through which security, compliance, and change management goals can be achieved in an automated fashion within control system environments.
DevOps is a juxtaposition of the words “development” and “operations” and is meant to portray a tight relationship between the two traditionally separate roles which build and operate complex computer systems and software applications. DevOps groups work with a unified goal to rapidly and reliably deploy and manage the underlying systems which organizations rely upon to make a profit while balancing resource constraints.
“Controlled Remediation” is a concept used to describe the use of automation to maintain acceptable configuration and settings on industrial cyber assets. Additionally, this presentation will discuss the variations of “Automated Remediation” and “Manual Remediation”.
