DevSecOps Training Bootcamp

One can make the argument that DevSecOps (development, security and operations) is important to every development project.

The reason: DevSecOps is a an approach that produces shorter development cycles, and shorter development cycles allow teams to respond to and fix problems faster, increase efficiency, test new features, and keep users happy.

Shorter development cycles also help to strengthen your team and improve their efficiency.

Another way of looking at it: DevSecOps is the new DevOps, only complete.

Since its inception, countless developers have adopted DevOps to speed up the software delivery process and increase communication between developers and IT Ops teams.

In today’s world, software development is holistic and iterative, making the siloed approach to security work contrary to the DevOps model, causing delays.

Applying security throughout the entire application lifecycle is the only way to properly secure an application.

DevSecOps requires developers and security personnel to have a mutual understanding and respect for what the other group does. A successful DevSecOps process reduces stress on both teams and avoids vulnerabilities being inadvertently built into the code.

Corporate giants such as Microsoft have turned to a DevSecOps approach in order to achieve common purpose between its development and security operations. Consequently, this shared purpose has resulted in better security for both its internal and commercial software and services.

Microsoft’s approach is simple and is based on good, consistent training and communication. However, for many organizations, executing that approach is not so simple. It requires buy-in from both groups, ongoing training, effective communication and, importantly, a strong endorsement from executive management.

Experts in this field recommend that teams share security best‑practices at Red Zone meetings. This way it’s possible to leverage each other’s best practices in the areas of technology, learnings and capability.

Analysts are quick to point out the importance of DevSecOps because a lack of understanding and poor communication can doom the relationship between security and development teams.

Additionally, analysts warn that switching to DevSecOps requires a mindset shift in several areas. Software engineers need to be on board with continuous updates.

For SaaS providers hosting applications in the cloud, having continuously updated software is critical.

DevOps without integrated security is no longer compatible with modern software development and deployment. In order to prioritize security throughout the entire app life cycle, DevOps has been transformed into this new model called DevSecOps.

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.
