The objective of this course is to introduce the attendees of this training to the basic concepts of DevSecOps and to go deeper from a security point of view, topics such as:

▪ The purpose, benefits, concepts and vocabulary of DevSecOps.

▪ DevOps security practices.

▪ Business-driven security strategies.

▪ The use and benefits of red and blue teams.

▪ Integrating security into continuous delivery workflows,

▪ How DevSecOps roles fit into a DevOps culture and organization.

▪ Docker + Kubernetes security.

▪ Jenkins - Orchestrating AST (App Security Testing).

▪ Gitlab - Community vs. Enterprise (Security Features)

▪ SAST (how to integrate static code analysis into the pipeline).

▪ DAST (how to integrate dynamic analysis in the pipeline)

▪ Auditing and control of the entire pipeline.

▪ Agile infrastructure availability (infrastructure as code).

▪ Blue and Green deployment

▪ Integration with network security infrastructure (WAF, etc)

Plan of studies

This workshop is divided into 4 days: It is designed to teach practical steps on how to integrate security programs into DevOps practices and highlights how professionals can use data and security science as the primary means to protect the organization and to the client.

Using real-life arguments and case studies, participants will have tangible opportunities to take advantage when they return to the office.
