Report: DevOps Lacks Security
This article is very interesting about their security that lacks. The good news is that speed and agility are the big drivers for service providers, enterprises embracing the DevOps. I think it will be the right way to go to boost the speed.

Re: It Only Takes One
@Joe the lure of free is nearly irresistable. That's an effect documented by Dan Ariely's research. So you are not alone by any means.  And the industry we discuss here knows it well. That's why they used to offer free phones with contracts, and Netflix continues to offer free trial months.

Re: It Only Takes One
@John: I think the deeper insight here is that, despite all the new tools and technology to target customers, people -- as customers -- still want to be surprised and feel like they're getting something special and unique.  This is why Wal-Mart still has those disorganized bins of $5 DVDs, and this is why the ice cream truck still drives by once in a blue moon.

Re: It Only Takes One
@Ariella: Of course, these days it's much more about price and convenience.

At CVS the day of Halloween, I kept myself from indulging in the candy aisle because said aisle was swarmed with last-minute shoppers -- and I was able to tell myself "I'll just get it on sale after Halloween."

That same day, at Dunkin Donuts when I went in for one specific thing, I kept myself from indulging in a donut or trying the new Reese's Peanut Butter Square (whatever that is), telling myself that it would be a bad habit and unhealthy to do so -- hellped by the facts that it would have been a hassle and that everything is behind the counter instead of in easy reach.

And then I went to a conference yesterday and loaded up on free, easily accessible sweets at the buffet.  ("It says it's gluten free!  I can have TWO!")

:(

Re: Lacks Security
It's funny. Developers always seem to dislike IT security, but I would argue that security procedures prevent programmers from causing serious problems. 

The tension between the two sides will likely never subside. And I think that's a very good think for organizations to protect themselves.

Re: DevOps Security Needed
You bring up such great points! I do think that security is still such a huge issue with so many businesses. As long as they stay on top of things, it should stay somewhat secure.

I agree with you as well. But I must say that trend is changing. But not at the level that is expected yet. But we may get there surely but slowly.

Re: DevOps Security Needed
Companies need to implement an enterprise risk management strategy, which will include IT Security risks and other risks such as operations risk and market risk. Security risks affect cost, performance, capability, security and reputation.

This has become more like a standard for companies that like to follow standards. I am part of one such and we have a dedicated ERM team and every projects IT or NonIT must go through risk management review on a recurrring basis and must obtain clearance from risk specialists. That is very critical for all projects.

Re: DevOps Security Needed
@freehe:

You brought up several good points.

I agree that organizations should integrate security tools more heavily into the development ecosystem.

This is a must need for the enterprise. That security integration into development systems will really be key just to make sure that we are considering security from ground up instead of applying that as a extra layer on top of the application layer.
