DevSecOps Training Bootcamp

DevSecOps (development, security and operations) is the seamless integration of security testing and protection throughout the software development and deployment lifecycle.

Similar to DevOps, the goals of DevSecOps are to release better software faster, and to detect and respond to software flaws in production faster and with more efficiency.

DevSecOps is important because although security does slow down software releases, it remains essential as the benefits far outweigh the risk of a security breach.

Not only does implementing DevSecOps reduce risk but it also saves rework and time by introducing security early in the development process. This is done by using security tools that can be automated and integrated early on especially during the code commit and the pre-implementation stage.

Analysts contend that the greatest obstacle to DevSecOps is culture rather than technology.

Traditionally, security teams and dev teams work separately. To successfully move to a DevSecOps methodology, teams should make application security an integrated strategy and continue to encourage security awareness.

Experts in this field recommend several approaches to developing a DevSecOps culture in your organization, such as:

  • Integrate the security to DevSecOps
  • Analyze code and do a vulnerability assessment
  • Adopting the right DevSecOps tools
  • Train to code securely
  • Monitor continuous integration and continuous delivery
  • Automate the process as much as possible

Do DevSecOps right and reap the benefits. DevSecOps supports openness and Transparency right from the start of development as well as Secure by Design and the ability to measure. Organizations can also expect faster speed of recovery in the case of a security incident and an overall security improvement by enabling Immutable infrastructure which further involves security automation.

Perhaps the biggest benefit is rapid, cost-effective software delivery.

When software is developed in a non-DevSecOps environment, security problems can lead to huge time delays. Fixing the code and security issues can be time-consuming and expensive. The rapid, secure delivery of DevSecOps saves time and reduces costs by minimizing the need to repeat a process to address security issues after the fact.

This becomes more efficient and cost-effective since integrated security cuts out duplicative reviews and unnecessary rebuilds, resulting in more secure code.

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.
