DevSecOps Training for Managers, a 1-Day Training Workshop for Leadership, and Program and Project Manager

DevSecOps Training for Managers

For managers today, DevSecOps plays a significant role in the development of mobile apps.

It minimizes the weakness of IT and business cooperation as well as improving higher speeds of workflow. Studies show it also leads to effective overall management.

Additionally, with DevSecOps there is an emphasis on DevOps Automation security problems. This includes configuration management, composition analysis, selected approved images or containers, etc.

The DevSecOps approach also emphasizes the importance of security working with development and operations from Day One. In the past, an isolated security team stepped in at the final stage of the app. Companies have now realized that in order to take full advantage of the responsiveness and agility of DevOps, integrating IT security into the full cycle of apps is a must.

Due to the rapid increase in the development of mobile applications and their deployment on the cloud, protection of data within these apps is vital for long-term success. Security and its proper integration, not just at later stages, but through the entire development stage have become crucial.

DevSecOps bridges that gap by going one step further and integrating security measures into the development process. It integrates security into the CI/CD pipeline. This enables early and continuous risk management.

Companies that embrace DevSecOps benefit from numerous advantages, including:

  • Speed of recovery is enhanced in the case of a security incident by utilizing templates and pet/cattle methodology.
  • Keeping in step with the frantic innovation intrinsic to cybercrime by effectively managing security auditing, monitoring and notification systems.
  • Improved overall security by reducing vulnerabilities, reducing insecure defaults, and increasing code coverage and automation through the use of immutable infrastructure.
  • Cost reduction is achieved by detecting and fixing security issues during the development phases which also increases the speed of delivery.
  • Threat hunting can avoid bad publicity, and therefore can potentially increase sales – it is obviously easier to sell a secure product.
  • “Secure by design” principle is ensured by using automated security review of code, automated application security testing, educating, and empowering developers to use secure design patterns.
  • Everyone is responsible for security. DevSecOps fosters a culture of openness and transparency, and does so from the earliest stages of development.
  • The ability to measure different things which can be seen by everyone – DevSecOps enables a culture of constant iterative improvements.

By stressing a security-first, DevSecOps incorporates security into the code level. DevSecOps builds infrastructure and applications that can securely scale at the speed of modern business.

DevSecOps is emerging as the new generation of secure development, eclipsing older, reactive security models. Before DevSecOps, developers designed a system first, then probed it for viabilities, correcting them as they surfaced. By moving responsibility for security to the door of every stakeholder, applications and processes are built to be as close as possible to invulnerable.

So how can you get your company started on a DevSecOps approach? The greatest obstacle to DevSecOps is culture, not technology. Traditionally, security teams and dev teams work separately. To successfully move to a DevSecOps methodology teams must make application security an integrated strategy and continue to encourage security awareness.

Things to consider when making the big move to DevSecOps:

  • Automate the process as much as possible
  • Evaluation of current security measures and concluding what to do to overcome problems
  • Train to code securely
  • Monitoring Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery
  • Mandatory security at every stage
  • Analyze code and do a vulnerability assessment

DevSecOps Training for Managers Course by Tonex

The DevSecOps Training for Managers is a 1 day introduction to DevSecOps. Participants will learn and apply the impact on IT security in modern DevOps as part of the IT Modernization to ensure rapid and frequent development cycles. Participants will compare that with how the 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.

DevSecOps is a way of approaching IT security with an “everyone is responsible for security” mindset involving best security practices into an organization’s DevOps pipeline applied to programs and Projects.
