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.
