This day long workshop will show you how to detect potential security and compliance issues in your environment, how to quickly and safely remediate those issues, and finally how to ensure that any instance in your environments is also built according to your compliance standards.

Workshop will include the following sub-modules:

  • Standing up a Chef Automate instance
  • Setting up your workstation
  • Automatically bootstrapping and configuring the Chef client on nodes
  • Downloading and installing InSpec compliance profiles
  • Scanning your fleet for potential issues
  • Writing a ‘remediation’ cookbook and applying it to your machines
  • Generating alerts when new compliance issues are found
