DevOpsSec: Securing Software through Continuous Delivery

The following is external content provided as a free resource for blog readers.

How do you build security and compliance into your DevOps platforms and pipelines? With this O’Reilly report, security analysts, security engineers, and pen testers will learn how to leverage the same processes and tools—such as version control, containers, and Continuous Delivery—that DevOps practitioners use to automate software delivery and infrastructure changes. In other words, you’ll understand how to use DevOps to secure DevOps.

Author Jim Bird uses case studies from Etsy, Netflix, and the London Multi-Asset Exchange (LMAX) to illustrate the steps leading organizations have taken to secure their DevOps processes. If you understand application and infrastructure security, and have some familiarity with DevOps and Agile development practices and tools, this report is the ideal place to start.

This report shows you how to:

  • Examine the security and compliance challenges that DevOps poses in your organization
  • Leverage key DevOps practices and workflows to design, build, deploy, and run secure systems
  • Build security as code by mapping security checks and controls into DevOps workflows
  • Take advantage of software component analysis, vulnerability management, and automated software testing tools that dev and ops already use
  • Build compliance into DevOps, and wire compliance policies and checks and auditing into Continuous Delivery

  • The adequacy of existing cybersecurity investments, both overall and within specific domains of IT
  • The likelihood of being compromised by a successful cyberattack
  • The types of cyberthreats that pose the greatest risk to the organization
  • The organizational factors that present the most significant barriers to establishing effective cyberthreat defenses
