Computing presents Deskflix Season 7: DevSecOps

Agile, Secure, Responsible

Over the last decade, DevOps has become integral to streamlining the development process, ensuring tighter communication between teams, easier and faster development cycles, and better end-user experiences. However, recent years have exposed flaws in the duet of developers and operations.

As part of Computing’s acclaimed Deskflix series, DevSecOps will dispel any ideas of a simple shift left and will highlight the necessity for organisations to reimagine their development processes once more. By including security into every stage of the development process, your products will not just experience the benefits of agile development but will grow stronger with each iteration through rapid automated testing and QA in your CI/CD pipeline and allow for increased observability.

Join us on Tuesday 30 November to hear from a diverse range of industry leaders and experts. Learn from their experiences on how you can build better cross-functional teams and implement secure code into products from day one. Understand that changing your company culture to place equal emphasis on your development, security, and operations, might seem expensive up front, but what rewards can you expect after the transition.
