Hot Button 2016: How DevOps and Automation Bolster Security and Compliance

As 2016 has arrived, we reflect upon one of the most debated issues around DevOps in 2015 - Information Security (InfoSec) and compliance. Needless to say, both are critical to an enterprise (especially given past examples of data breaches and looming cybersecurity threats). As a result, the combination of InfoSec and DevOps practices can be viewed as counter-intuitive, since the ability to "go faster" can be seen as a potential risk to security mechanisms in place, and thus harder to ensure compliance and enable auditability.

However, we repeatedly heard a different story in 2015 - InfoSec teams are embracing DevOps as the practice that enables - and enforces - security and compliance requirements. But how?

To answer this question, I had the pleasure of working with TechBeacon on a new story for the ‘New Year' that outlines the different ways of how DevOps is increasingly underpinning the security blanket for enterprise IT organizations. In fact, DevOps provides a huge opportunity for better security across an entire company. Many of the practices that come with DevOps, such as automation, emphasis on testing, faster feedback loops, improved visibility, collaboration, consistent release practices, and more, are fertile ground for integrating security and audit capabilities as a built-in component of your DevOps processes.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
