Trainer Name: Jovin Lobo
Title: DevSecOps – Automating Security in DevOps
Duration: 3 Days
Dates: Sept. 6, 2022 To Sept. 8, 2022


  • Create a security culture/mindset amongst the already integrated “DevOps” team.
  • Find and fix security bugs as early in SDLC as possible
  • Build a secure by default infrastructure by automating security
  • Build a system with continuous security monitoring

Training level: Intermediate


Modern enterprises are implementing the technical and cultural changes required to embrace DevOps methodology by introducing practices such as Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), Continuous Monitoring (CM), and Infrastructure as Code(IaC).DevSecOps extends DevOps by introducing security in each of these practices giving a certain level of security assurance in the final product. In this training, we will demonstrate using our state-of-the-art DevSecOps Lab how to inject security in CI, CD, CM, and IaC.

Every delegate will be provided a personalized cloud setup of our DevSecOps lab for hands-on implementation of various security tools in the CI/CD/CM pipeline. Attendees will receive the DevSecOps Lab built using Vagrant and Ansible comprising the same tools and scripts as a takeaway.

A basic understanding of web security and DevOps will be helpful. However, this is not mandatory.


DevOps engineers, security and solutions architects, and system administrators will also strongly benefit from this course as it’ll give them a holistic approach toward application security.


Key Takeaways:

  • Understand how to tackle security issues in a fast-moving DevOps environment
  • Identify tools/solutions and develop processes to create a secure by default infrastructure
  • In-depth understanding of various tools that can be used for security automation
  • Utilize the integration scripts and tools provided in the DevSecOps Lab to create your own DevSecOps pipeline
