This module will introduce students to key concepts that require strategic thinking and planning.

During this module, we’ll pay special attention to threat modeling, attack path, metric, context and risk management process.

Module 4: Security Considerations

Learning Objectives

This module outlines the key security considerations that must be followed by any DevSecOps engineer, with a specific focus on basic security hygiene.

We will talk about key security concepts, such as the checkbox trap, basic security hygiene, architecture, federated identity and log management.

Students will learn what these terms mean and discover their relevance to the overall security system.

Module 5: Identity and Access Management

Learning Objectives

This module discusses technical details involved in security practices that should be incorporated into any DevSecOps program.

Then, we will discuss software composition analysis and threat modeling. Students will also learn how to integrate new findings into daily work and how to implement security tools to established pipeline development processes.

Module 7: Operational Security

Learning Objectives

In this module, we will discuss some further practices used to increase security within the operations environment and how to scale DevSecOps practices across an enterprise.

We will talk about basic security hygiene, vulnerability and patch management, and the importance of pre-secured environments to the shift-left mindset.

What is DevSecOps?

DevSecOps is a relatively recent development in the world of DevOps. It adds security to DevOps' focus on development and operations by making sure security considerations are addressed (and, where possible, automated) throughout all key processes.

Why is security important in DevOps?

DevOps helps organizations to greatly streamline development and operations processes. However, traditional security measures struggle to keep up with this speed, which can leave DevOps users and their products vulnerable. DevSecOps solves this problem by speeding up security while also making it more of a priority.

How does DevSecOps work?

DevSecOps works by integrating security processes with DevOps practices. It establishes ongoing 'security as code' cultures (meaning that security checks, tests, and gates are added to processes that involve code and infrastructure).

It also encourages collaboration, communication, and shared responsibility for security.

What is a DevSecOps engineer?

DevSecOps engineers are tasked with overseeing the implementation and management of DevSecOps. They choose appropriate tools and programs for security and automation while also making sure that all team members are up to date on how to optimize security

How can DevSecOps benefit businesses?

Applying traditional security measures to DevOps creates a bottleneck, greatly slowing down key processes and delaying release dates. DevSecOps removes the bottleneck by making security a priority throughout.

Not only does it leave DevOps products safer, but it also ensures this without causing major delays.

What do I need to know about the DevSecOps examination?

The DevSecOps Foundation (DSOF)℠ exam is an open-book examination consisting of 40 questions. The exam lasts 90 minutes (with 25 additional minutes for students who do not speak English as a native language). The pass mark for the exam is 65%.

What does the DevSecOps certification path look like?

DevSecOps does not have a strictly defined certification path. However, it is best to study the methodology with an accredited training provider.

How valuable is DevSecOps training?

According to Neuvoo, DevSecOps certified practitioners can earn between $70,000 and $205,000. According to TotalJobs, DevSecOps users in the UK can earn between £30,000 and over £150,000. Salaries also depend on each candidate's role, location, and experience.

What other frameworks can complement DevSecOps?

DevSecOps can be used with a number of other frameworks, such as ITIL 4, PMP, and PRINCE2.
