How to Move to DevSecOps?

Just like the Private Sector, the pace of digital transformation in Government has massively accelerated in 2020, forcing many Governmental organisations into an “adapt or fail” situation. Software is at the centre of it all, placing increased pressure on Developers, DevOps leaders, AppSec managers, who need to develop and deploy more applications and keep even more software updated with latest releases. At pace and securely.

However, this need for speed comes at a price, as security can be seen as a blocker and not an enabler. As the proliferation of software continues, bringing with it an ever-expanding attack surface that’s ripe for targeting by malicious actors, state or otherwise, securing software must be a priority.

In this webinar, Checkmarx Northern Europe's Pre Sales Engineering Manager, Andrew Thompson will share with viewers why NOW is for some the right time to move to a DevSecOps approach, and for others to accelerate this movement using best practises, guidance and tips plus discussing application security tools that can offer advanced technology from the start of development through to deployment and testing and subsequent automation.

Presented by

Andrew Thompson,

Sales Engineer Team Leader

Andrew has been working in the IT industry for over 30 years, with experience in Java programming, Speech Recognition, software testing and security. He has spent the last 14 years helping companies integrate static analysis into their SDLC, before Devops, and most definitely before DevSecOps was a ‘thing’. Now focusing on security, Andrew is able to advise on how to embed best practice security analysis into development teams daily routines.
