Developing a Rugged DevOps Approach to Cloud Security

Your operational tools deliver continuous monitoring and alerting for applications deployed in the cloud. So why doesn’t your security suite do the same? Although no single path to a secure DevOps approach works for every organization, Tim Prendergast offers a set of key principles and techniques that have distinct advantages for delivering safe and secure products in the cloud. Security can no longer be thought of as a separate step in a product’s launch and must be integrated into the overall processes of continuous development and deployment. Implementing continuous security monitoring is non-negotiable. Tim shares strategies to better understand your data’s value to an attacker, how to better define the battlefield to your own advantage, how to identify potential DevOps security allies within the organization, why it is time to embrace continuous security cycles, and why automating security acceptance tests as part of the QA process helps achieve a more agile security posture.
