Security & Chaos Engineering: A Novel Approach to Crafting Secure and Resilient Distributed Systems
People operate differently when they expect things to fail. Additionally, teams are more likely to keep an open mind about what is actually causing those things to fail when they are not fighting fires. There is a fundamental shift in mental focus and operational momentum that drives teams to put the fire out versus thorough examination of what caused the incident to begin with. As far as we know it Chaos Engineering is the only proactive mechanism for detecting availability and security incidents before they happen. Security Chaos Engineering allows teams to proactively, safely discover system weakness before they disrupt business outcomes. In this session we will introduce a new concept known as Security Chaos Engineering and how it can be applied to create highly secure, performant, and resilient distributed systems.
