While the business keeps increasing the pressure and demand of flexibility of the development team, the agile movement was pushed to the limits. CI/CD was born to reduce manual step to reduce human errors and increase speed to go-live! Last not least, with DevOps the teams took application responsibilities, from cradle to grave. Nevertheless, software security is still missing in many full-stack developers resume and application security responsibilities are pushed off to the security department still. Petty, because the exactly agile, CI/CD and DevOps are security enabling practices.
This session is explaining Shift-left, early security enablement in the development Lifecycle.
