Service-Minded Security: Enabling Agile Teams in a DevSecOps World

enabling agile systems

Organizational transformation affects teams in every specialization. More than ever, organizations are transforming towards Agile and DevOps Product teams, who make frequent software decisions and deployments. What changes should we see in a security department and those responsible for security as a practice in such an environment? What will the security architects and practitioners have to think about or change from their traditional roles? 

To address this question, Solsys brought together a panel of experts from Solsys and some of our partners in the Agile coaching, and IT Security industries. In our discussion, we help to define some of these terms like DevOps, DevSecOps, and Product Teams, and go on to talk about what security organizations and the role of the CSO could be in the future to truly enable these teams to deliver secure and security compliant products and services. We’ll discuss the service mindset, and the types of services security teams can deliver to these Agile DevOps teams to help ensure success.

We hope you find this discussion valuable. If you’d like to talk to Solsys to understand these topics in greater detail or discuss how we might be able to help you implement some of these ideas and practices, we’d be happy to speak with you. Please fill out our contact form here.
