Now that threats increasingly strike a widening array of systems, government needs to conduct its operations, development and security as an ensemble of efficiency.
Today, leading governments are working to integrate security into their DevOps practices and culture, ensuring that public sector innovation can be delivered securely – and creating an evolved approach called DevSecOps.
The Defense Department is following in the footsteps of companies like Tesla and Nextflix, both of which use an automated approach to develop, secure and release software.
The barrier to entry for agencies that adopt innovative technologies and approaches can seem daunting. It’s hard enough to change the hearts and minds of those used to working a certain way, but then there’s the challenge of learning a new process or tool.
DevOps not only helps agencies meet compliance demands, but also exceeds those requirements by empowering more innovative, timely and secure development of critical software.
The Air Force is looking to buy more cloud services, DevSecOps licenses and talent to prepare its IT efforts for mission success.
These numbers illustrate the growth of DevSecOps and set the context for why this practice is important for governments at all levels to implement.
Given the advance of cyberattacks and security issues throughout government today, this focus on security needs to continue – and it makes it more important than ever that security teams are incorporated into the DevOps culture that is developing. This leads to DevSecOps – meaning thinking about application and infrastructure security from the start.
To bridge the divide between development, operations and security teams and ensure that systems stay updated, running and secure all at the same time, agencies are investing in a new approach known as DevSecOps.
