Security needs to be involved with development projects at the earliest possible point. There are many software offerings to help with this process, but “shifting security left” requires a culture change as well. If you don’t, you’ll likely face one of two consequences: projects will slow to a crawl as required security measures are bolted on, or the schedule will be met at the expense of adequate security.

The shift from traditional structures to DevOps united development, operations and engineering teams. Now, the evolution to DevSecOps requires further expansion of the roster. It’s crucial that security architects, engineers and other cybersecurity professionals are also involved in the cloud-native life cycle.
