About this talk

In late 2017, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released Special Publication (SP) 800-190, the Container Security Guide, a set of guidelines for securing container applications and infrastructure. This panel webinar, hosted by NIST SP 800-190 co-authors, John Morello (CTO, Twistlock), and Murugiah Souppaya (Computer Scientist, NIST) will cover: • Why NIST SP 800-190 was created, the open process used to develop it, and how all organizations can benefit from it • Some of the specific container risks identified in the SP • Top recommended countermeasures for each risk Implementation guidance and best practices In addition, the session will highlight how organizations can leverage functionality provided by container-focused orchestration and security platforms to automate compliance across the development lifecycle - reducing overall attack surface and delivering comprehensive threat protection.
