Teach your teams how to improve the DevSecOps practice
Led by a senior expert, teach your teams how to improve the DevSecOps practice – from guiding principles to daily technical execution.
This DevSecOps training boot camp is the most practical, in-depth educational solution for teams who want to understand, apply, and improve their skills on “shifting left” in IT security. This expert-led boot camp focuses on the principles, processes, and technical skills necessary to make security and risk profiling a front-end priority: embracing a “quality first” mindset. Teams will leave class understanding that they have a responsibility for how applications and IT services perform when they are complete and in production…even if they are involved primarily in design, development or testing applications. For IT teams primarily on the end of the operations of the spectrum, this class will teach them how to shift left and collaborate on the upstream work that ultimately impacts the IT security environment, the organisation’s risk management, and their own daily jobs.
