Course Abstract

What is DevSecOps?

DevSecOps is a software development methodology that integrates security into every phase of the SDLC. By adopting DevSecOps, organizations can build more secure applications and reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks.

Benefits of DevSecOps: 

● Improve security: By integrating security into the SDLC, organizations can identify and remediate security issues earlier in the development process. 

● Reduce risk: DevSecOps helps organizations reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks by building more secure applications. 

● Increase speed: By automating security testing, DevSecOps enables organizations to release software faster without sacrificing security. 

● Enhance collaboration: DevSecOps encourages collaboration between development, security, and operations teams, leading to better communication and more effective security practices.

In Hands-On DevSecOps training, you will learn how to handle security at scale using DevSecOps practices. We will start with the basics of the DevOps, and DevSecOps principles and move towards advanced concepts such as Security as Code, Compliance as Code, Configuration Management as code, Infrastructure as code, etc., 

The training will be based on DevSecOps Studio, a distribution for DevSecOps enthusiasts. We will cover real-world DevSecOps tools and practices in order to obtain an in-depth understanding of the concepts learned as part of the course. 

We will also cover how to use static analysis (SAST), Dynamic Analysis (DAST), OS hardening, and Security Monitoring as part of the Secure SDLC and how to select tools that fit your organization’s needs and culture. 

After the training, the students will be able to successfully hack and secure applications before hackers do. The training will also include a challenge at the end as part of the assessment, where the students will use skills learned in the training to solve the challenges. The students will be provided with tools, lab material, and virtual machines used during the course.
