How to build and deploy software securely
Who is the material made for?
The target group for this course is diverse, encompassing professionals from different backgrounds who are involved in software development, security, IT operations, or managers. Here are some of the key target groups that would benefit from this course:
Software Developers, Security Professionals, IT Operations, and System Administrators will understand how to integrate security practices into their development workflows, gain insights into integrating security into the software development lifecycle and learn the best practices and techniques for securing and maintaining applications and their infrastructure.
IT managers and team leads responsible for overseeing software development projects or procuring software will benefit from this course by gaining a comprehensive understanding of DevSecOps principles and practices. They will be able to lead their teams in adopting secure development methodologies, improving collaboration between teams, and better evaluating the security of software and its risks.
It is important to note that while this course caters to professionals with varying levels of expertise, a basic understanding of software development concepts would be beneficial, especially for solving some of the accompanying Capture the Flag challenges on DevSecOps.
In today’s fast-paced and interconnected digital landscape, organizations face increasing challenges when it comes to securing their software applications and infrastructure. DevSecOps (a portmanteau for Development, Security, and Operations) is an approach to culture, automation, and platform design that integrates security as a shared responsibility throughout the entire IT lifecycle an evolution of the software.
In this course, we will explore the key principles, tools, and techniques that enable organizations to build a robust and secure software development pipeline. We will delve into the core concepts of DevSecOps, covering topics such as continuous integration and delivery, automated testing, vulnerability scanning, and security monitoring.
Throughout the course, you will gain practical insights into how to integrate security best practices into each phase of the software development process. In addition to the comprehensive theoretical knowledge, this course offers an exciting opportunity to put your skills to the test through Capture the Flag (CTF) challenges specifically designed for DevSecOps. These CTF challenges will allow you to apply the concepts you’ve learned in a hands-on where you’ll face simulated scenarios and real-world security vulnerabilities.
Whether you are a software developer, system administrator, security professional, or an IT manager seeking to enhance your organization’s security posture, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to implement DevSecOps practices effectively. By participating in the CTF challenges, you will strengthen your problem-solving abilities, enhance your critical thinking skills, and gain practical experience in identifying and addressing security flaws in DevSecOps processes.
Join us on this learning journey as we unlock the power of DevSecOps and empower you to deliver secure, reliable, and resilient software solutions. Get ready to transform your approach to software development and make security an integral part of your DevOps culture.
