The GitHub Implementation Team would like to invite you to a hands-on workshop on GitHub Advanced Security on Friday, September 23rd, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m

GitHub Advanced Security is a feature currently available to public repositories.  Here is the detail of the workshop:

The goal of the session is for everyone to gain more familiarity with GitHub Advanced Security in a hands-on environment. We will be using a sample repository to implement the various features. After the workshop, you will still have the sample code and repository to look back to when implementing these features in other repositories.

  • Overview: What is GitHub Advanced Security
  • Hands On:
    • Importing sample code into new repository in your GitHub account
    • Enabling Security features on the repo, such as Dependabot Security Alerts
    • Reviewing at Dependabot alerts that are generated
    • Creating CodeQL Code Scanning workflow
    • Testing out secret scanning and push protections
    • Creating branch protection policies to prevent vulnerable code and dependencies from reaching Main branch
  • Q&A
Pre-requisites: account (able to log in, remember password, etc.)
