Innovation and risk often go hand in hand – nowhere more than in software development. Spinning up new resources lets you work faster and bigger, but it’s almost always accompanied by risky oversights and manual configuration errors (like default settings, insecure permissions, and outdated software).

Misconfiguration is one of the biggest sources of infrastructure security risk – and one of the most preventable.

Join Puppet community lead Ben Ford and cybersecurity and compliance evangelist Robin Tatam for a showcase of Puppet Compliance Enforcement, now available to all Puppet users for the first time (including Open Source Puppet). They share stories from their vast experiences and explain how Puppet Compliance Enforcement quickly automates and enforces secure configurations across on-prem, cloud, and hybrid infrastructure to protect data from dangerous misconfiguration.

Key takeaways:

  • Case studies on the risk of misconfiguration
  • How compliant configurations add up to system security hardening
  • How Puppet Compliance Enforcement works to keep systems secure and compliant with minimal manual effort
  • Examples of how Puppet helps throughout the stages of a cybersecurity event
