Moving to a Cloud-Native Strategy? If You’re Not Doing DevOps, You’re Doing it Wrong


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

As organizations move to a Cloud-Native strategy, their conventional approach to software development, delivery, and deployment just won’t fit. DevOps is required to successfully transition to cloud-native developments, and without it, your approach will likely experience serious shortcomings. While the traditional idea of a software release dissolves into a continuous cycle of service and delivery improvements, organizations find that their conventional approaches to “software security” are having a difficult time adapting to a Cloud-Native strategy. Security has continued to be viewed as an inhibitor to this new model, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Join Stephen and Kelly in this session to:
  •     Discover why AST solutions must be capable of being entirely automated within the Cloud-Native tooling that’s already in use.
  •     Learn how to ensure vulnerabilities in custom code, open source, and run-time risks are identified and remediated early within Cloud-Native architectures, without adding interruption.
  •     Understand the hurdles you’ll face when attempting to integrate security testing in Cloud-Native initiatives and how best to manage every expectation.

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event.

You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
