The term DevOps originated from “Agile System Transformation” and was intended to promote collaboration between development (Dev) and operations (Ops). However, DevOps has never excluded other areas. On the contrary, it aims to break down siloed structures and create a culture of cooperation and shared responsibility.
The role of security is critical, both in DevOps and in the cloud environment. By using automation, e.g., continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), we can consider security aspects at an early stage and continue to do so during the development process. This enables fast and secure deployment of software and infrastructure.
A comprehensive approach is always necessary to achieve optimal communication between the teams involved. Regular structured meetings, common objectives, and transparent information are essential. The integration of security experts into the DevOps process, in addition to the use of security as code, enables seamless collaboration and sharing of best practices among all stakeholders.
