DevSecOps Foundation℠ will introduce the purpose, benefits, concepts, and vocabulary of DevSecOps including DevOps security strategies and business benefits.

As companies deploy code faster and more often than ever, new vulnerabilities are also accelerating. When the boss says, “Do more with less”, DevOps practices adds business and security value as an integral, strategic component. Delivering development, security, and operations at the speed of business should be an essential component for any modern enterprise.

Course topics covered include how DevSecOps provides business value, enhancing your business opportunities, and improving corporate value. The core DevSecOps principles taught can support an organisational transformation, increase productivity, reduce risk, and optimise resource usage.

This course explains how DevOps security practices differ from other approaches then delivers the education needed to apply changes to your organisation. Participants learn the purpose, benefits, concepts, vocabulary and applications of DevSecOps. Most importantly, students learn how DevSecOps roles fit with a DevOps culture and organisation. At the course’s end, participants will understand “security as code” to make security and compliance value consumable as a service.

No course would be complete without practical application and this course teaches the steps to integrate security programs from the developers and operators through the business C-level. Every stakeholder plays a part and the learning material highlights how professionals can use these tools as the primary means of protecting the organisation and customer through multiple case studies, video presentations, discussion options, and exercise material to maximise learning value. These real-life scenarios create tangible takeaways participants can leverage upon their return to the office.

This course positions learners to pass the DevSecOps Foundation exam.
