DevSecOps requires processes and tools that enable weaving security throughout the DevOps pipeline. Developers share ownership of security, and the traditional silos between development and security teams are broken down.
Most organizations believe they are in the process of adopting DevSecOps tools and practices. But are they really?
We surveyed over 560 application security professionals and software developers to find out.
Most security professionals and developers believe their organizations are in the process of adopting DevSecOps tools and practices.
If both teams feel they are neglecting security to stay on schedule, something in the DevSecOps process is broken
Automated AppSec tools help speed up security — if developers are willing to adopt them.
Unfortunately, most security professionals barely consider developers’ adoption when choosing an AppSec tool.
Even though lack of skilled personnel was the second biggest challenge listed by security, secure coding training is neglected by organizations.
The divide between security and development teams is again reflected by the differences in training perception between security professionals and developers.
We do not have a secure code training program at our organization
Developers receive an annual training on secure coding
Our secure code training program is performed regularly for our developers
Developers receive training tools, allowing them to train themselves independently on secure coding best practices
Without a standardized prioritization process, friction between development and security teams rises, and remediation is delayed.
An AppSec champion helps bridge the skills gap, and supports prioritization processes. When cooperation is encouraged, standardized processes for prioritization are more common.
Teams with an AppSec champion have nearly twice the chance to easily reach an agreement with a standardized process.
