DevSecOps Practitioner (DSOF)℠

DevSecOps Practitioner introduces a range of practices for advancing to a more comprehensive understanding of DevSecOps practices. Explore practical outcomes by finding the right mix of people, building processes to accelerate value, and comparing technological options available today. Tailored for recently transformed organizations who are looking to enhance DevSecOps skills and awareness.

To maintain the highest quality learning for our community, DevOps Institute Certifications expire two years from the date of completion. Members can maintain their certification by participating in the Continuing Education Program and earning Continuing Education Units through participation in learning opportunities.

Participants should have baseline knowledge and understanding of common DevSecOps definitions and principles.

Advanced Basics
Understanding how to succeed, as highlighted by Malcolm Gladwell, depends on knowing not just the basics but understanding why and how those concepts matter. Exploring the fundamentals with Agile and Lean processes, learning about platforms, and knowing who to hire can make all the difference Equally important to building teams, one must learn how to communicate among teams.

Creating DevSecOps Infrastructure
Solid plans lead to solid infrastructure. Knowing how to transform an organization to cloud-native, lift and shift existing models, and integrate infrastructure as code can mean the difference between success and failure. The most effective parts of infrastructure can rely on securing gateways and end-points through analyzing how customer and internal traffic progresses securely through those areas.

Observing DevSecOps Outcomes
The goal of DevSecOps is not just sooner and safer but establishing outcomes that contribute to organizational value. Shifting focus to create value depends on creating observability across all processes, to target metrics and build effective observational tools into the process. Different tools create different views and the observability tools one selects can affect overall outcomes.

Appliecl tvletrics
Everyone starts with basic metrics that can sometimes reach goals, but other times one needs a more concrete understanding of how to build appropriate metrics to succeed. Metrics can apply not just to production but to how one manages people and guides their process to improve success. Selecting the appropriate tools can help accelerate metrics collection and application.

Practical 3rcl Way Applications
DevSecOps depends on not just flow and feedback but creating a continuous learning path to always improve. Knowing which areas can be improved relies on effectively collecting quantitative and qualitative data to support improvement efforts. At the same time, external events like hackathons and group sensing sessions can contribute to understanding learning effectiveness.

Arcliitecting & Planning for DevSecOps
Building a DevSecOps plan depends not just on espousing the right words, but having a solid plan on which one can build an effective architecture. Organizational metrics can be confusing and this area clearly builds on enterprise and API metrics across the architecture while including how to integrate effective security metrics.

Estaolisliing a Pipeline
The key part in any good DevSecOps process relies on integrating a DevSecOps pipeline to support the overall value stream. Pipelines must not just be created by people, but then optimized for their success with good DevSecOps fundamentals using WI P across functional and non-functional areas of the pipeline. Effective pipelines contribute to secure repositories and create telemetry to feed back into the overall metric structure.

Tlie Future of DevSecOps
As a cultural process, DevSecOps is here to stay. Keeping in line with DevSecOps means comprehending technical advancements such as quantum computing, bio-design and artificial intelligence. Each of these may contribute to future pipelines, but only if one applies sound innovation practices into continual learning cycles
