DevSecOps w/ Chris Hughes

by Cyber Ranch

Show Notes

Allan is joined by Chris Hughes, CISO & Co-founder at Aquia and adjunct professor at UMGC, to talk about all things DevSecOps (Development, Security and Operations). They explore the DevSecOps phrase itself, as well as why security should be treated as an integral component and not a separate entity. In this episode, Allan and Chris take a deep dive into the subject and bring clarity to questions, such as:

    -What roles help achieve security in DevOps?

    -What are the cultural barriers to implementing secure DevOps?

    -What are some common mistakes as well as best tips?
