The security incident response process isn't getting any easier, not in an age characterized by mobile workers, cloud computing and faster networks. So much can go wrong: Attacks can come from any source and use every method imaginable -- and some not yet identified. The trick is to get a grasp on what's most likely to breach your system, ensure that you're alerted when it does and know what you're going to do about it when it happens. To achieve this, you need to have a security incident response plan in place. As part of this plan, set up good policies and coordinated responses, making sure your IR tools are the most capable possible, including those that can automate aspects of the security incident response process.
This Insider Edition of Information Security magazine focuses on how to minimize cyber-risk through threat detection and incident response. Security pros will find the latest information on options for IR tools and other ideas on making your incident response process as effective as it can be.Continue Reading
DevOps is a process aimed at creating and updating applications quickly and, traditionally, it has lacked effective security controls. The software that was created too often contained vulnerabilities right from the start. Combining DevOps and security, or what is called DevSecOps, promises to solve this problem, reducing the time and effort required to fix security issues that could have been avoided altogether. An added bonus: DevSecOps promises to overturn longstanding views among some developers that security is an obstacle, not an aid, to good software development.
Beyond embedding security controls in the software development process, DevSecOps also involves using configuration management tools, monitoring logs and events, and performing vulnerability assessments. The end result is more secure applications and infrastructures.
This e-publication offers an in-depth look at what is involved in combining DevOps and security. Readers will come away with a deeper understanding of the promises DevSecOps offers and how it works.Continue Reading
