Three Misconceptions to Dispel about DevSecOps in 2022

Three Misconceptions to Dispel about DevSecOps in 2022

There have been several misconceptions about DevSecOps in practice. IT teams can ensure that software is launched rapidly while still incorporating security across the whole software development life-cycle.

Enterprises are incorporating DevSecOps into their software development, security, and operations procedures on a daily basis to ensure that key security controls can be included in their rapid software delivery.

According to a survey by Ponemon, 84% of respondents indicated it’s difficult to decrease application risk since they can’t monitor, identify, or prevent assaults at the application level. DevSecOps is the revolutionary answer for many enterprises to secure apps through improved collaboration across development, security, and operations.

In 2022, enterprises should endeavor to debunk the following DevSecOps myths:

DevSecOps is a one-size-fits-all approach to security

Successful DevSecOps projects are likely to share common characteristics and practices, but diverse organizations will discover that there is no single standard approach to DevSecOps adoption. Since DevSecOps will affect virtually every aspect of a business, each organization will need to customize this process to meet its own goals and priorities. 

Following DevSecOps best practices is a great place to start, but attempting to replicate the DevSecOps approach of another company may prove to be an unproductive method to reap the advantages of this movement.

DevSecOps is synonymous with automation

AppSec invocation and execution along the SLC are regarded to need to be automated so that AppSec technologies can run automatically as part of the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) process, and that DevSecOps is unachievable without AppSec automation. The fact is that automation is required in certain AppSec technologies, but not all.

Traditional AppSec integration in the CI/CD process should be a low(er) priority since they are rarely employed. Specially built solutions that actually support DevSecOps and are helpful in the hands of developers and operations professionals, should be the key subject for automation. With those tools, application security testing may happen dozens of times each day and thousands of times throughout the SLC.

Control is lost as a result of DevSecOps

It’s easy to understand where this concept came from, because many in the development community may perceive anything related to product security as a barrier that limits their independence and creativity. Developers, project managers, and others enjoy the concept of being in charge of their work and its speed.

Furthermore, employees may be concerned about DevSecOps automation and what it means for their own sense of team purpose. Manual methods are slow and deliberate, but they provide teams a feeling of control and give them a hands-on feel.

To dispel common misunderstandings about control, DevSecOps leaders must educate their teams on how the system operates and why it benefits everyone. Sharing real-world examples of how effectively DevSecOps is functioning in other firms and the benefits they are experiencing with the participation of all team members, may be beneficial.
