DevSecOps Is Alive and Well Within Platform Engineering

In recent times, there’s been a growing chorus proclaiming “DevSecOps is Dead” while singing the praises of platform engineering. But let me make this clear: DevSecOps is very much alive and thriving within the realm of platform engineering. The reports…

Going Back to the Future with Pair Programming

I might be dating myself here, but I worked through the era when companies were hiring people off the street with no computer experience to teach them COBOL because it was just that hot. It didn’t work out so well,…

DevSecOps is Not About AI (But They Do Taste Great Together)

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Not another article about AI!” And this isn’t… not really. This is about DevSecOps, but Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the reason for my reaffirmation. On my news feed (which is a highly-technical series of…

DevSecOps is NOT About Security

Click-bait aside…I am tired of seeing articles and presentations about DevSecOps only to find out that it is just standalone security procedures shoehorned into a vague development and/or operations process. DevSecOps is more than just “Sec” smushed in-between “Dev” and…

An Introduction to Continuous Software Engineering

If you have read my other articles, I hope you can sense my passion for enabling continuous software engineering practices. This should be no surprise coming from a co-host of the ContinuousX Podcast series. I believe that if a process…

Agile 2: A New Hope

I definitely have a love-hate relationship with Agile.  It’s not that I’m a fan of the Waterfall methodology. Far from it.  But that’s a black-or-white logical fallacy.  There are more than two ways to do things.  And it is hard…

Let’s Rethink and Finally Adopt Continuous Deployment

Continuous Deployment is the familial outcast that no one talks about in the CI/CD world. It’s the “Jon Snow” of the Stark family for you Game of Thrones fans. And … no spoilers … like Jon, a true hero with…

Skill Tracks II: The Wrath of Kanban

I was re-watching Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan the other night and I was reminded – once again – about how Lean management can be poorly implemented.  That may not be readily apparent, so walk with me for…

AI and You – How AI Can Benefit From DevSecOps

If you are a connoisseur of trade shows and new product innovations like me, then undoubtedly you have heard that every known product in existence has a new feature that is driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and fueled by machine…

Embracing DevSecOps AND Separation of Duties? It is Possible…

I have heard that implementing DevSecOps along with Separation of Duties (SoD) security principles is akin to running a humidifier and a dehumidifier in the same room and at the same time.  Two opposing forces working tirelessly against each other…

 

 

 

We launched GovDevSecOpsHub to focus on the next evolution of application development, DevSecOps, which brings cybersecurity teams and tools into the development process sooner so that applications are more secure and safeguarded against cyber threats.

In  GovDevSecOpsHub we’ll look at the evolution from traditional software and application development to the DevOps model. We’ll talk about the importance of moving from DevOps to DevSecOps. We’ll highlight the technologies and cultural changes necessary to make this shift happen. And we’ll profile government organizations and executives that are the “boots on the ground” as the government pivots towards the DevSecOps model.
