DevOps has changed the way software is built, delivered, and operated. Behind the improvements are DevOps teams, cultural shifts, and tooling built to serve engineers. Let’s look at why security has remained stagnant while a best-in-class standard has been developed for the rest of engineering.

DevOps has changed the way software is built, delivered, and operated in production. Features are pushed out faster than ever before, applications are more resilient, and improvements in the development pipeline have given engineers the power to own the complete delivery of their application.

Behind the improvements that we have seen from the advent of the DevOps movement are DevOps teams, cultural shifts, and tooling that was built to serve the engineers themselves. While the world has shifted left and a best-in-class standard has been established for software engineering, application security has remained stagnant.

Takeaways:

  • Understand how cultural and technical barriers have prevented security from shifting left.
  • Learn about security’s production bias, and how to shift it.
  • Discover how restructuring the focus between security and developers creates better alignment with skill sets, and ultimately more secure development.
