Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical DevSecOps Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any DevSecOps related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated DevSecOps specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the DevSecOps Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which DevSecOps improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. Do you have performance measures in place from the customer point of view? For instance: How many minutes has the service not responded within its SLA the number of affected customers within a given week?

  2. For people to embrace an idea and a culture such as DevSecOps, you need to consider what is defective with the status quo. Can you explain what is wrong with traditional delivery approaches?

  3. How are other IT security practitioners thinking differently about cyberthreats and defenses, and should you adjust your perspective and plans to account for such differences?

  4. Now that you have containerisation and developers have more flexibility how do you ensure that an engineer is not inadvertently introducing a security hole in a service?

  5. How does your organization embrace a transparent, collaborative development process while protecting sensitive information in a lengthy and rigid procurement structure?

  6. If you had an innovative new idea that required software development as a key component, how long would it take to approve the idea, build it, and deploy it to users?

  7. Have you developed a policy specifically for cloud security that defines who owns cloud risk. Is the CISO responsible, or are the business unit managers responsible?

  8. The relationship between MDM and mobile security has always been an uncomfortable seam for many enterprise security teams. How do you smoothen this interaction?

  9. Manageability; how easy/hard is it to visualize your infrastructure/environment and then create, test, and maintain a highly granular set of security policies?

  10. How long before you notify the affected users via your service blog and Twitter that you are working on a problem and what the expected next steps will be?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the DevSecOps book in PDF containing 999 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your DevSecOps self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

  • The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the DevSecOps Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which DevSecOps areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:

    • Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
    • Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough DevSecOps Self-Assessment
    • Is secure: Ensures offline data protection of your Self-Assessment results
    • Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:

 

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage DevSecOps projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step DevSecOps Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 DevSecOps project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Project Charter: Success Determination Factors: How will the success of the DevSecOps project be determined from the customers perspective?

  2. Schedule Management Plan: Is the firm certified as a broker of the products/supplies?

  3. Cost Management Plan: Does the detailed DevSecOps project plan identify individual responsibilities for the next 4–6 weeks?

  4. Scope Management Plan: How difficult will it be to do specific activities on this DevSecOps project?

  5. Procurement Audit: Are all purchase orders reviewed by someone other than the individual preparing the purchase order (reasonableness of order and vendor selection)?

  6. Source Selection Criteria: How are clarifications and communications appropriately used?

  7. Risk Management Plan: Was an original risk assessment/risk management plan completed?

  8. Risk Audit: Does your organization have any policies or procedures to guide its decision-making (code of conduct for the board, conflict of interest policy, etc.)?

  9. Activity Duration Estimates: Do you agree with some of the suggestions provided for improving DevSecOps project communications?

  10. Quality Management Plan: Are there ways to reduce the time it takes to get something approved?
