Objectives

This course will help familiarize you with the term DevSecOps, help you understand how it applies to software development, and demonstrate how DevSecOps benefits your organization. 

  • Define DevSecOps, an extension of DevOps, which includes “pushing quality closer to the source” and “shifting security left” in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
  • Explain why DevSecOps is relevant for all modern software development organizations.
  • List three ways legacy security processes can produce unintended outcomes for software developers and application security teams.
  • Articulate three compelling reasons that adopting a DevSecOps process makes good business sense for any organization developing software.

It is all about breaking silos and cultural change

Really resonate with this quote from Sonatype CTO - "What we see in the market is that our customer's greatest challenge today is often the cultural change required to get all the process owners to think outside the legacy process box they find themselves in."

A solid foundation of understanding how software should be built securely and at the speed of innovation.

These principles transcend any product or platform. You simply must understand that OSS is the way that modern software is assembled and to not take steps to understand how to manage and mitigate risk with automation and collaboration is to invite catastrophe.
