Containers and serverless architectures will be introduced and their security implications reviewed. Agile DevOps methodologies will be covered and the use of a Continuous Integration Pipeline for security improvements, validation and testing.

The course is delivered through presentations, discussions, practical demonstrations and 'hands-on' labs.
