What Does Security Have to Do With DevOps?
Traditional development practices have been supplanted by the DevOps movement over the past decade. The next evolution is the movement towards DevSecOps where security is integrated across the development lifecycle.
DevSecOps is not just a matter of buying the latest tooling and running the developers through some training. It requires commitment, not just from the technology group as a whole but from the business leaders themselves.
It is as transformative a project for an organisation as is a move from on-premise to Cloud. Poorly managed or even unplanned DevSecOps can have a negative impact on the development capabilities within an organisation.
