DevSecOps incorporates security initiatives at every stage of the software development life cycle (SDLC).  It is a set of practices combining software development, security, and IT operations with the goal of shortening a system’s development life cycle securely. From identifying patterns to uncovering new ways to support the mission, DevSecOps is playing an essential role in government’s digital transformation efforts. This virtual workshop will cover what is new with DevSecOps and how agencies are balancing the drive to innovate while meeting necessary security measures.

Learning objectives include:

  • Hear how DevSecOps contributes to digital transformation efforts
  • Learn the four levels of DevSecOps Maturity
  • Understand how to accelerate DevSecOps efforts
  • Recognize how to avoid CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous deployment) pipeline setbacks
  • Hear Industry Best Practices
