Today, many enterprises run cloud native applications and Kubernetes in production for their most complex and mission-critical systems. However, there’s no shortage of challenges when trying to secure cloud native applications. On Oct. 12, the KubeSec Enterprise vSummit will bring the community together to discuss the state of Kubernetes security and share experiences of enterprises securing real-world Kubernetes deployments.

KubeSec Enterprise vSummit is a full-day industry event taking place on Day 0 at KubeCon NA, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s annual flagship conference that gathers the leading open source and cloud native communities. While KubeCon is expected to cover general security topics for a broader audience, KubeSec will be entirely focused on successfully rolling out cloud native applications at large organizations with more demanding security and compliance requirements.

As a vendor-agnostic forum, KubeSec was launched in 2018 with the vision to help security practitioners at all levels from across the community to learn, connect and exchange fresh perspectives. This year, the summit will be fully virtual — no need to leave the comfort of your home, and you can join us from anywhere.

Who Should Attend KubeSec?

Whether you are just planning to deploy your first Kubernetes cluster and wish to learn from experts in the field, or you are an early adopter willing to share your challenges and experiences, KubeSec is an event for you. During the full-day summit, there will be plenty of valuable insights and educational sessions for all levels of Kubernetes maturity.

Here are the five reasons why you don’t want to miss it.
