Why security in DevSecOps is No 1 challenge?

May 26th 2022

Presented by Praveenkumar Prem

The sudden wave of change in the application development methodologies have created a crisis with application security. The changes caused by Digital Transformation on business, have rendered the legacy waterfall methodology irrelevant into a speed driven DevSecOps world. In the Traditional waterfall methodology, everything was predictable with quarterly/monthly/yearly releases. This allowed specialised independent security teams to embed application security.

But with Agile development practices, changes to an application happens on a daily/weekly or even multiple times a day within a Sprint. Of course, agile brings many business benefits. Agile promises to improve the customer experience - especially mobile based apps. Applications help with automating processes for quicker results. But practicing agile to achieve these benefits increases risk of introducing new vulnerabilities or complicating earlier ones.

The potential fallout of risky applications is a disaster for business. Hence the response from IT teams must be fast. Since the way application development has faced rapid changes, it’s more important to clarify the new requirements for DevSecOps for application security and roles must be clearly defined. Developers are not going to be solely responsible for security breaches. CIOs to security managers to security testers must involve in the new integrated DevSecOps framework.
