The current social media frenzy is clearly buzzing around #BlackLivesMatter and that has spawned a myriad of copycats ranging from #AllLivesMatter to #MyCatMatters. So, not to be outdone and certainly not to diminish the importance of those previously mentioned social media movements, we would like to offer a sentiment directed to the c-suite in enterprises to better understand the emergence of new roles in the security department. Specifically, #DevSecOpsMatter.
What Is DevSecOps and Why Should You Care?
Increasingly sophisticated and ever-changing cyber threats require new levels of security assessment, software code development and integration design, oversight, and penetration testing across applications, operating systems, networks, mobile, cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). This has given rise to a new variation of DevOps that accommodates security. While some call it SecDevOPs and some call it DevOpsSec, the majority have settled on calling it DevSecOps.
