DevSecOps Training Bootcamp

The objective of DevSecOps (development, security and operations) is to make everyone accountable for security with the focus on implementing security decisions and actions at the same scale and speed as development and operations decisions and actions.

Some would argue it’s not just about development, security and operations. It’s about a mindset that is so important, it led to the term “DevSecOps” to emphasize the need to build a security foundation into DevOps initiatives.

DevSecOps means thinking about application and infrastructure security from the start. It also means automating some security gates to keep the DevOps workflow from slowing down.

Implementing DevSecOps can be an elaborate process for an organization, but well worth it when considering the benefits. Implementation normally includes the following stages:

  • Planning and development
  • Building and testing
  • Deployment and operation
  • Monitoring and scaling

Besides increasing sales, the most obvious benefit of DevSecOps is the improvement of security. Vulnerabilities can be identified at a very early stage in your pipeline, making it exponentially easier to fix it. And since continuous monitoring is in place, it enhances threat-hunting capabilities. Business-wise, the more secure a product, the easier it is to sell.

Discovering vulnerabilities in the beginning stages of SDLC has tremendous impact on overall security as well as the costs to fix issues. Also, multiple teams coming together to work on security improves accountability. Such collaboration also facilitates coming up with quick and effective security response strategies and more robust security design patterns. DevSecOps also reduces the frequency of security bottlenecks. Security checks can be run without waiting for the development cycle to finish.

Another important benefit: DevSecOps provides managers with a holistic overview of such measures, thus providing a better framework for easier compliance with regulation such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

A DevSecOps program requires continuous improvement to achieve desired efficiency. Sound principles to follow for a DevSecOps implementation, include:

  • Enforcing tight access security for API endpoints.
  • Automated tests for security capabilities wired into the acceptance test process. These automated tests include input validation as well as authentication and authorization enforcement.
  • Scanning any pre-built container images for known security vulnerabilities as they are pulled into the build pipeline.
  • Automated security updates, such as patches for known vulnerabilities, by means of the DevOps pipeline with an audit log.
  • Automated service configuration management, allowing for compliance with security policies and the elimination of manual errors.
  • Continuous monitoring, audit, and remediation of security defects across the application lifecycle.

DevSecOps Training Bootcamp Course by Tonex

DevSecOps Training Bootcamp is a 3-day practical DevSecOps course where participants gain in-depth knowledge and skills to apply, implement and improve IT security in modern DevOps.

DevSecOps training bootcamp focuses on the concepts, principles, processes, policies, guidelines, mitigation, applied risk management framework (RMF), technical skills and best practices to apply security and risk management/profiling a DevOps priority. Participants learn about DevOps and DevSecOps to take full advantage of the agility and responsiveness of a secure DevOps approach, IT security across SDLC and full life cycle of your apps.

As IT Modernization efforts Grow it’s important to understand the combination of development and operations as an approach that could help organizations modernize and speed new development efforts, especially as they migrate to cloud services.

Effective DevOps ensures rapid and frequent development cycles but inappropriate and outdated security practices and policies can undo even the most efficient DevOps initiatives. DevSecOps, integration of DevOps and security, is a shared responsibility to emphasize the need to build a security foundation into DevOps initiatives.
