SA1: Introduction to Kubernetes Runtime Threat Detection

Thursday, June 8, 2023 10:25 AM - 10:55 AM

Exhibit Hall Stage A


Most admins understand what runtime security is and why it’s important. And yet, they often overlook or underinvest in runtime security as part of their Kubernetes security strategy. It’s easy to understand why: Kubernetes is such a complex system, and it offers so many different types of native tools to help access privileges and isolate workloads, that teams can become so engrossed in securing the cluster itself that they forget about Kubernetes runtime security. To help close that gap, this talk puts Kubernetes runtime security in context with an overall “shield-right” approach for modern security programs. And, you’ll obtain an overview of the landscape of open source tools you can put into production now to protect against runtime threats.
