Course Overview

Modern enterprises are implementing the technical and cultural changes required to embrace DevOps methodology by introducing practices such Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), Continuous Monitoring (CM) and Infrastructure as Code(IaC).

DevSecOps extends DevOps by introducing security into each of these practices giving a level of security assurance in the final product. In this course, we will demonstrate using our state-of-the-art DevSecOps Lab how to effectively inject security in CI, CD, CM and IaC.

Every delegate will be provided a personalized cloud setup of our DevSecOps lab for hands-on implementation of various security tools in the CI/CD/CM pipeline. Attendees will receive the DevSecOps Lab built using Vagrant and Ansible comprising the same tools and scripts as a takeaway.

Thank you team for a wonderful DevSecOps Course!"

Delegate, Nullcon 2021

The tools presented are excellent. It was good that there had obviously been a lot of work done on finding good tools for each piece of the course."

Delegate, AppSecOps Course

Thank you @notsosecure and @nullcon for the extensive training on DevSecops. Really engaging and a great learning session. Worth mentioning the material and the hands on-lab. Kudos to the team and their hard work for a smooth experience."

Delegate, Nullcon 2021

Thanks NotSoSecure for such a great DevSecOps course!"

Delegate, CheckPoint - DevSecOps Course

As the speed and frequency of releases increase, DevSecOps is a must to introduce security earlier in the software development life cycle (SDLC). It is a key for DevOps teams to deliver secure applications with speed and quality. Attended a 4 day training on DevSecOps - Automating Security in DevOps conducted by NullCon. A big thanks to NotSoSecure | part of Claranet Cyber Security for conducting the insightful sessions. Had a very enriching experience."
