The presentation will provide a detailed understanding of the "shift left" approach: what is it; how it evolved; why is it needed; and how is it accomplished. Shifting left refers to the idea of addressing security concerns earlier in the software development lifecycle. It is a modern approach to shifting left that can have a significant impact on risk reduction for cloud- native development teams and help them to strike a healthy balance.
The presentation will reference key elements for a successful shift left strategy such as:
-Secure coding training for developers
-Security in design
-Ongoing infrastructure baseline validation
It will explain SDLC and OWASP DevSecOps maturity model where security tasks need to be automated and integrated within the development and deployment pipeline.
Define the meaning of a shift left approach and why is it needed.
List key elements for a successful shift left strategy and methods to accomplish.
Understand that by implementing shift left and adopting a DevSecOps mindset, organisations can foster collaboration and knowledge sharing between developers, operations teams and security experts.
