Continuous Security Testing

As we operate within an increasingly digital environment, organizations are coming under a growing number of threats from the latest cyber-attacks. Organizations need to build resiliency to the forefront of their digital strategy to ensure they are operating at their peak to protect their businesses, customers, partners, vendors, and staff.

This session will cover what needs to be protected, how to implement continuous security testing in the CICD process, the benefits of continuous security testing, and Hands-on demo.

AWS Cost Optimized Load Testing

January 2022 - date to be announced shortly

Load testing is essential for assessing the performance of an application. Integrating load testing in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CICD) can help in identifying critical performance issues that arises as part of code changes. However orchestrating load testing in CICD brings in additional challenges in terms of setting up test data, load generator and controller machines.

JMeter is one of the most commonly used performance testing tools and it uses Master slave model where Master machine acts as a controller and multiple slave machines act as load generators. Having dedicated AWS EC2 instance/VM as controller or load generator machines can increase the testing cost. In this session we are going to see how to reduce the load testing cost by creating EC2 instances on demand using JMeter, Taurus framework, Jenkins, Ansible and Kubernetes.  Once the load test is completed, all the result will be moved to repo/artefacts and the EC2 instances will be shut down.
