Learn the purpose, benefits, concepts, and vocabulary of DevSecOps including  DevOps security strategies and business benefits.  

As companies deploy code faster and more frequently than ever, new vulnerabilities also accelerate. When the boss says, “Do more with less,” DevOps practices add business and security value as an integral strategic component. Delivering development, security, and operations at the speed of business should be an essential component for any modern business.

This course covers how DevSecOps provides business value, enhances your business opportunities, and improves corporate value. The core principles of DevSecOps can support an organizational transformation, increase productivity, reduce risk, and optimize use of resources.

The course explains how DevOps security practices differ from other approaches and provides the training you need to apply the changes to your organization. Participants learn the purpose, benefits, concepts, vocabulary, and applications of DevSecOps. Most importantly, students learn how DevSecOps roles fit within a DevOps culture and organization. Most importantly, students learn how DevSecOps roles fit with a DevOps culture and organization. By the end of the course, participants will understand “security as code” to make security and compliance value consumable as a service.

No course would be complete without a practical application and this course teaches the steps to integrate security programs from the developers and operators through the C-suite (CEO, CTO, CIO,…). Each stakeholder plays a role and the learning material highlights how professionals can use these tools as the primary means to protect the organization and the customer through multiple real-life case studies, videos, discussions, and exercises to maximize the value of learning.
