Automating Security in DevOps

Trainer Name: Jovin Lobo

Title: DevSecOps - Automating Security in DevOps

Duration: 4 Days

Dates: Sept. 23, 2021 To Sept. 26, 2021

Time: 10 a.m. To 2 p.m.

Training objective:

  • Create a security culture/mindset amongst the already integrated “DevOps” team.
  • Find and fix security bugs as early in SDLC as possible
  • Build a secure by default infrastructure by automating security
  • Build a system with continuous security monitoring

Training level: Intermediate

Training preview:

Modern enterprises are implementing the technical and cultural changes required to embrace DevOps methodology by introducing practices such as Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), Continuous Monitoring (CM), and Infrastructure as Code(IaC).DevSecOps extends DevOps by introducing security in each of these practices giving a certain level of security assurance in the final product. In this training, we will demonstrate using our state-of-the-art DevSecOps Lab how to inject security in CI, CD, CM, and IaC.
Every delegate will be provided a personalized cloud setup of our DevSecOps lab for hands-on implementation of various security tools in the CI/CD/CM pipeline. Attendees will receive the DevSecOps Lab built using Vagrant and Ansible comprising the same tools and scripts as a takeaway.
