DevSecOps Adoption: Lessons from the Past
"Security, Security, Security!" is a new "Developers, Developers, Developers!" in our World where most of the day-to-day processes are digitised.
"DevSecOps is the practice of integrating security testing at every stage of the software development process." (c) Amazon AWS
We got the right term and idea of mixing DEVelopers, SECurity, and OPerationS to deliver secure applications with minimum friction. However, it's a big cultural, technical, and organisational shift to which different companies adapt at a different paces.
The good news is - we've been here before. We went through a few big adoptions in the last 20+ years - Digital Transformations, Cloud, DevOps, Microservices, SRE to name a few.
So, what we can learn from the past?
In this talk, I'll go through my experience related to DevOps and Agile adoptions which are quite different BUT turned out to have a lot in common when looking at the big picture! I will distill the key moments that helped to push both over the line.
From there we can look at the current state of DevSecOps, what we can do now, what to keep an eye on and what are the missing pieces.
