KubeCon + CloudNativeCon provided valuable insights for security teams supporting cloud-native development, including securing GenAI, platform engineering and supply chains.

With its theme "Architect Your Future," this year's KubeCon + CloudNativeCon highlighted security updates and efforts to support the thriving global community and ecosystem.

The attendees -- 9,000 in person in Chicago, with an additional 5,000 attending virtually -- ranged from seasoned cloud-native technologists to first-time attendees who are newer users of Kubernetes. We heard updates from diverse groups of people from all over the world who are using cloud-native technologies, including those with full-time jobs working on Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) projects to contribute to the community.

The CNCF now has a separate event, CloudNative SecurityCon, dedicated to security, but it is still important that KubeCon + CloudNativeCon addressed cybersecurity because -- as our research on cloud security posture management shows -- security responsibility is typically split between cybersecurity, IT and Ops teams.
