DevOps and security: An important intersection

Caleb Queern shares how DevOps provides opportunities in the software development life cycle to make things safer, as fast as possible, and at the right cost.

Sep 12, 2017

A growing percentage of today’s organizations are adopting DevOps, a set of behaviors that reduces the friction between Dev and Ops so quality software can be delivered quickly to the market. DevOps’ goal is communication and collaboration between product management, software development, and operations professionals.

While DevOps has been around for quite a while, a newer take has recently emerged. Whether you call it Secure DevOps, DevSecOps, or some other variation, it’s making it explicit that there are opportunities earlier in and throughout the software development life cycle to make things safer, as fast as possible, at the right cost by “shifting security left”.

In this podcast, Caleb Queern, a security services-focused member of KPMG’s Advisory group, sat down with Stan Lepeak to discuss:

  • The three different stages along the secure DevOps journey – optimizing the flow, gaining visibility into more improvement opportunities, and continuously learning and experimenting
  • The myth that some of the leading practices in Secure DevOps increase risk into the equation
  • Why today’s fast market pace should compel organizations to embrace the risk-reducing capabilities of Secure DevOps now.
