Next-Generation DevSecOps for the Public Sector

The cyberthreat landscape is constantly shifting at a time when government agencies face a growing demand for digital services. Agencies can balance those competing priorities by embracing a methodology that speeds and strengthens every aspect of software development, including security. Known as DevSecOps, the methodology allows agencies to create, deploy and maintain apps that are targeted to users’ needs, easily updated and continuously monitored for security purposes.

In a recent survey of FCW readers, 68% of respondents said the changing cybersecurity landscape is driving the adoption or evolution of DevSecOps at their agencies. Those security concerns crop up at all levels of government. The Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity has a section devoted to supply chain security, with recommendations that include the use of secure software development environments and software bills of materials for purchased apps or components.

As more agencies adopt DevSecOps to manage all aspects of developing and deploying secure, modern apps, they will build trust between the government and the people it serves, while also boosting employee engagement and productivity. In other words, they will recognize that DevSecOps is a prerequisite for achieving digital transformation. Read the latest insights from industry thought leaders in cybersecurity, including:
