New! Free self-paced workshops for containers and Kubernetes 

There’s no better way to learn something than to get hands-on. Tigera is excited to present its brand new (and completely free!) self-paced workshops for securing containers and Kubernetes. Each workshop comes with your own provisioned sample application (Hipstershop) and Calico Cloud lab environment for a limited time.

The first self-paced workshop we’ve launched is on compliance for containers and Kubernetes. Let’s take a closer look at why you should enroll in our compliance workshop and what you’ll gain.

Why get hands-on with achieving compliance?

From the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), most industries must meet certain compliance requirements when it comes to handling personal data. This could mean implementing resource access control, isolating workloads with sensitive data, or enforcing more advanced security controls such as logging all customer confidential data transactions. No matter what sort of controls you need to implement, the compliance auditor will require proof of compliance, such as what security controls are currently in place, whether control changes can be detected, and if compliance can be verified on demand. The ephemeral nature of Kubernetes can make it difficult to produce this proof. After all, if your workloads and IPs disappear all the time, how can you prove to the auditor you were compliant?

As an active Cloud-Native Application Security Platform (CNAPP), Calico is purpose-built with compliance and compliance auditing in mind. But how does it work? How do you implement Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM)? How can you achieve compliance with regulatory frameworks? These questions are all answered in our self-paced compliance workshop, where you get to work with our resident Calico experts.

Our self-paced compliance workshop is created to grant learners practical knowledge of how to use Calico to achieve compliance. You will also gain insight into how your industry peers secure and monitor cloud-native applications in Kubernetes.

What’s covered in the compliance workshop?

The 90-minute hands-on workshop will show you how to achieve compliance for regulatory frameworks, including PCI DSS, SOC 2, GDPR, and more. In this workshop, you will be provided with your own provisioned demo application and Calico Cloud environment for 24-hours so you can:

  • Create security policies for compliance
  • Try out our Dynamic Service and Threat Graph, Flow Visualizer, and Kibana dashboards for real-time observability
  • Secure data in transit with WireGuard
  • Extract pre-built reports for auditing and reporting
  • …and more!
