DevSecOps foundation

According as companies push the code faster and more often than ever, the vulnerability rate in our systems is accelerating. As we are asked to do more with less, DevOps has demonstrated immense value for companies and security as an integral component that must be integrated into the strategy.

The topics covered in the course include how DevSecOps provides the commercial value of DevOps and the ability that DevOps has to enable the business and support an organizational transformation with the ultimate goal of increasing productivity, reducing risk and optimizing cost in the organization.

This course explains how DevOps security practices differ from other security approaches and provides the education needed to understand and apply data and security science. Participants will learn the purpose, advantages, concepts and vocabulary of DevSecOps, particularly how the DevSecOps roles fit a DevOps culture and organization. At the end of this course, participants will understand: The use of "security as a code" with the intention of making security and compliance consumable as a service
