Study: DevOps Servers In The Wild Highlight Infrastructure Security Needs

Source – tripwire.com A mature DevOps practice involves applying multiple tools at different steps of the delivery pipeline, and a new study from IntSights focuses on these tools that may be open to attack on the Internet. Each new tool added to your process can expand your attack surface area – and, in many cases, new development and delivery tools are being used without oversight from a security team. With complex tools being used in each DevOps step, potential attack vectors and the risk of

Why new feature testing should be at the heart of DevOps

Source – techtarget.com The idea of continuous testing generally entails an always-on, massive build server that does more than just build. It should create a test environment and run end-to-end comparison checks against the system to simulate user behavior. Continuous testing is supposed to check all these things, but when it comes to software, that is naive at best. Complete testing is impossible. If you think about it, mass inspection masks a problem. When you commit to mass inspection, you’re giving up on good software

Are You Protecting Your DevOps Software ‘Factory’?

Source – darkreading.com A new study out today shows that DevSecOps could stand to use a healthier dose of OpSec, as many DevOps tools are left exposed on the public Internet with little to no security controls. So much of the education about the intersection of DevOps and security focuses on application security testing and secure development practices. But DevSecOps is about more than just securing the software product itself. It’s also crucial to protect the “factory” that produces those applications — namely,

What tools are needed to build a DevOps management model?

Source – techtarget.com Traditionally, application development and IT operations teams have been separate entities focused on their individual core competencies. In recent years, however, as organizations re-evaluate their approaches to IT to optimize processes, there has been a shift toward more collaboration across development and operations groups. The result of this collaboration is an approach called DevOps. In a DevOps management model, the development and operations teams work together through the entire lifecycle — from design through post-deployment production support. Such a

Could Agile and DevOps be to blame for banking IT failures?

Source – computerweekly.com This is controversial and feel free to air your views or even vent your anger. During a conversation about the TSB IT disaster a contact of mine, a senior IT professional in banking, asked a question about the link between Agile and DevOps development methods and the bank IT failures in recent years.  Legacy systems are usually blamed, but what is the role of Agile and DevOps when things go wrong? I would be interested in hearing from other experts

Despite DevOps, Firms Unprepared for GDPR

Source – devops.com Most organizations are not fully compliant with the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) before it takes effect in May, analysts report. While DevOps certainly gives organizations the mean to turbo charge the compliance process, stakeholders outside of IT departments often are failing to greenlight this necessary project ahead of the deadline, due largely to uncertainties about the regulation.   Not being in compliance could hit organizations hard, with fines up to 4 percent of their annual revenues
