Software developers are challenged with prioritizing between delivering code within aggressive timelines and incorporating security into the development lifecycle. We have seen how organizations have been working to adapt security practices to the agile methodology – a leading framework for code development. And we have witnessed developers struggle with finding practical information on how to address security issues while not killing productivity. One of the latest movements – DevOps encompasses the concepts of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery, and is rising in prominence – raising new questions on the role security plays.
Despite increased public awareness of the repercussions of delivering insecure software, developers are still trying to reconcile their competing priorities. According to the recent Information Week App Dev Priorities Survey, only 25% of developers report having a corporate policy on secure coding standards that is actually enforced. Additionally, application developers have been taking on the responsibility of security despite this not being their primary expertise. This leads to questions on how development organizations can enable their teams to automate and embed security into their coding practices without negatively impacting productivity and product delivery timelines.
In this webinar, we will provide developers with practical steps to start incorporating security into day-to-day planning, processes, and culture. Learn how to leverage best practices from both the agile methodology and DevOps in order to automate and integrate security into the SDLC.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how you can:
- Leverage Agile and Agile Trends including the evolution of fast-flux development processes and the role of DevOps
- Work with Security teams and use their expertise to engage in more secure coding practices
- Discover best practices for incorporating security tasks into developers’ workflows (including bug tracking systems such as JIRA)
- Learn why getting security on your radar not only helps you meet requirements, but also opens up new career opportunities
