The high-stakes world of business and IT demands a level of efficiency and collaboration that a growing number of organizations are achieving through the DevOps methodology. By bridging the gap between the traditionally siloed departments of Development and Operations, DevOps builds environments of shared insight, experience, and resources that can deliver exceptional benefits in terms of collaboration, speed, and efficiency. At the same time, the methodology’s emphasis on automation enables far greater reliability for essential processes across multiple teams.

However, the speed offered by DevOps can be hindered by traditional security practices, with irregular and insufficient checks often causing bottlenecks prior to the point of completion. ‘DevSecOps’ incorporates security into DevOps practices, enabling regular and automated checks that ease the burden on security staff while also exposing other teams to security considerations such as the cyber threat landscape. In essence, it enables users to fully enjoy the benefits of DevOps without having to sacrifice speed or security for clients and their data.

This module introduces students to the course by outlining the course structure and lesson plan. It also refreshes students on the contents of the DevOps Foundation syllabus to put them in the correct frame of mind for expanding their knowledge of the methodology.

  • Students are also provided with a toolkit which includes:
  • Table of contents
  • DevOps Foundation reference sheet
  • DevSecOps reference sheet
  • Skills self-audit form
  • Glossary
  • Build your own glossary
  • Further resources
  • Diagram pack

The module concludes by taking students through the details of the DevSecOps V 2.0 Foundation examination. They are also given a list of further reading, which will aid them throughout the remainder of the course.

Module 0: Welcome to DevSecOps Foundation
This introductory module looks at the course’s features, learning plan, structure, aims, and objectives.

Students receive a syllabus, glossary, diagram pack, links to download framework publications, and further reading and links document. The module also examines frequently asked questions regarding DevSecOps.

The DevOps community is continuing to grow, with certified practitioners often enjoying better career and networking opportunities than non-certified colleagues. Not only is security a hot topic within DevOps itself, but with developments like GDPR regularly drawing attention to its importance, security specialists are finding themselves in increasingly high demand.

This course is designed to prepare students to not only sit and pass the DevSecOps 2.0 Foundation certification exam, but also to gain actionable insight which they can begin applying in real-world organizations. The Orbus Support Team is also fully qualified to answer questions on course content, equipping students with an invaluable resource as they progress through the syllabus.

Organizations that fail to fully incorporate modern security practices into development and operations can suffer substantial penalties to speed and efficiency. DevSecOps has practitioners apply automated security checks throughout all essential processes, highlighting potential issues early on so that they can be dealt with swiftly. This helps to prevent substantial problems arising just prior to or after the point of release, reducing the likelihood of either significant delays or flawed end products.

This course was developed by Good e-Learning, an award-winning online training provider and a Trusted Education Provider for the DevOps Institute. The course is fully accredited, and there are no prerequisites for sitting the DevSecOps V 2.0 Foundation certification exam. In other words, the course is ideal for both experienced DevOps practitioners who wish to update their knowledge and relative newcomers who want to start out with the latest version of the worldwide methodology.
