The Future of Cyber Technologies, App&Sec, and DevOps: Importance of Application Security in DevOps

Future Cyber Tech, Application Security & DevOps Theatre

Thu 19th Oct 11:40 to 12:10

Most organizations have well-established software development lifecycle (SDLC) processes for analysis, design, development, testing and production releases of software products and packages. But typically rely on the costlier approach of software patching to fix the security related issues. Furthermore, with the upsurge of DevOps, rapid application delivery is dramatically shifting the approach of integrated security processes during continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) with increased focus on agility, speed, and innovation. Thus, DevOps requires a fundamental transformation in the implementation of secure coding practices to make security a vital part of development in the early stages of the SDLC. This presentation will discuss the security steps that organizations can take to develop and deploy secure applications with the convergence of DevOps. Attendees will learn about the key challenges in structural and process barriers, best practices for secure application development and steps to enhance the integration between application security and DevOps.

What you will take away from this session

  • Key challenges in structural and process barriers for DevOps adoption
  • Importance of secure coding practices within development organizations
  • Best practices for secure SDLC processes
  • Steps to enhance the integration between application security and DevOps
