Securing Your K8s Workshop Austin

Now that everyone is moving more and more workloads to Kubernetes we need to talk about securing your K8s infrastructure. Default settings with a nice firewall at the edge is not going to cut it once you move out of test / skunkworks projects and into production.

Come to this all-day workshop to learn how to use Calico and Tigera Secure to secure your K8s clusters.

First we’ll learn the basics of K8s networking, then we’ll dive into the best practices to configure your K8s cluster for maximal network security and compliance. Finally in the afternoon, attendees will get hands-on experience securing K8s workloads using Tigera Secure – the best in class networking / firewall solution for Kubernetes in the marketplace. We will provided hosted lab infrastructure for attendees to use.

Attendees should bring a laptop with an SSH client to connect to our lab infrastructure.
