The Role of Open Source in DevSecOps – David DeSanto – ASW #158

In the wake of events such as the Solarwinds breach, there has been a lot of misinformation about the role of open source in DevSecOps. GitLab believes everyone benefits when everyone can contribute. Open source plays a key role in how GitLab addresses DevSecOps. We will discuss GitLab's view of the role of open source in DevSecOps including recent contributions to the open source community as well as GitLab's plans for the future.
