Applied DevSecOps

Are you interested in developing DevSecOps skills for secure software development? Do you want to learn how to integrate security into your software development lifecycle (SDLC) and automate security testing? Then our DevSecOps training program is perfect for you!

What is DevSecOps?

DevSecOps is a software development methodology that integrates security into every phase of the SDLC. By adopting DevSecOps, organizations can build more secure applications and reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks.

Benefits of DevSecOps:

  • Improve security: By integrating security into the SDLC, organizations can identify and remediate security issues earlier in the development process.
  • Reduce risk: DevSecOps helps organizations reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks by building more secure applications.
  • Increase speed: By automating security testing, DevSecOps enables organizations to release software faster without sacrificing security.
  • Enhance collaboration: DevSecOps encourages collaboration between development, security, and operations teams, leading to better communication and more effective security practices.

What our DevSecOps training program covers:

In Applied DevSecOps training, you will learn how to handle security at scale using DevSecOps practices. We will start with the basics of the DevOps, and DevSecOps principles and move towards advanced concepts such as Security as Code, Compliance as Code, Configuration Management as code, Infrastructure as code, etc.,

The training will be based on DevSecOps Studio, a distribution for DevSecOps enthusiasts. We will cover real-world DevSecOps tools and practices in order to obtain an in-depth understanding of the concepts learned as part of the course.

We will also cover how to use static analysis (SAST), Dynamic Analysis (DAST), OS hardening, and Security Monitoring as part of the Secure SDLC and how to select tools that fit your organization’s needs and culture.

After the training, the students will be able to successfully hack and secure applications before hackers do. The training will also include a challenge at the end as part of the assessment, where the students will use skills learned in the training to solve the challenges. The students will be provided with tools, lab material, and virtual machines used during the course.

I am thankful for the DevSecOps classes by Raghunath. Being a Pen-Tester, these DevSecOps classes gave me more insight into the critical importance of security in both DevOps. The classes were interactive, and my doubts were well received and cleared. The practical classes were highly informative and gave me hands-on experience in the topic. I’m glad that I took the classes from Mr. Raghunath from Eracorp.

This course offers a unique, rich program in skills that are highly sought after today. I had a wonderful experience with highly trained and helpful trainer Raghu, who is a leader in this field and went out of his way to make sure I understood the how and why of our training. I came with a security background looking to learn security implementation in DevOps (training that is not easy to find) and I successfully learned with the ability to implement security in the DevOps pipeline and have a stronger understanding of many concepts in DevOps.

Raghu is an excellent trainer, He explained the devsecops big picture and cleared my doubts, I feel more confident about configuring client’s security pipeline with the notes provided.
