DevSecOps: Security at the Speed of DevOps

Transformation, Case Studies

Security specialists, especially at large organizations, believe that better security comes from robust independent gating. On the other hand, DevOps has proven that you can safely deploy orders of magnitude faster than human gating can achieve. What's needed to add security to DevOps are tools that work well with rapid-cycle CI/CD pipelines and an approach that reinforces the DevOps culture and process changes. This requires that security specialists become self-service toolsmiths and coaches AND STOP THINKING OF THEIR JOBS AS GATEKEEPERS. This talk includes guidance on the characteristics of security tools compatible with DevOps but it primarily focuses on the harder part... THE PEOPLE. This talk introduces Larry's DevSecOps manifesto and provides you with a process model, based upon Agile transformation techniques, to accomplish the necessary mindset shift and achieve effective DevSecOps culture transformation. It has been successfully used in a large DevSecOps transformation at Comcast and has gained recognition in DevSecOps circles as a leading framework.
