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

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.

Companies without the use of probability distributions or ranges of cost as well as external security assessments cannot quantify the uncertainty of security risks. Companies need to identify the total cost of risk (TCoR) to see the true impact of risks to the enterprise.

Train and Collaborate
Senior management must require teams to collaborate and work together and require that silos be eliminated throughout the department to ensure the DevOps initiative is successful.

Companies also need to provide annual security training for developers and all employees to reduce common security risks and minimize security vulnerabilities.

I am not surprised that out of 1,000 job posting security was not a required skill set. I worked at a company with over 1,500 employees and we had a small IT security team of three people, which was not large enough to solve all of the security issues that the company experienced. We had to hire external contractors to solve the major security issues the company faced.

DevOps collaboration
This article again reinforces the need for collaboration and partnership between teams such as security and DevOps. Most companies believe DevOps can improve application security but it is not a high priority in their strategic plan for the future. Companies may be struggling to realize the potential of DevOps because their current employees are not specialized in DevOps. Companies need to hire DevOps specialists to help realize the benefits.

Re: It Only Takes One
@Carol Wilson, I totally agree. Companies would rather pay millions later than spend thousands upfront. This also lead to an increase in data breaches and results in customer churn.

Lacks Security
@Michelle, I agree. I worked in IT Security for six years and was astonished at the security risks and vulnerabilities that were exploited by companies from even the basic security practices such as installing the most recent patches, using encrption and using stong passwords. When will they ever learn. Sigh!

Re: It Only Takes One
@johnBarnes then there is the possibility that more people will shop online -- even at traditional supermarkets that offer shop and delivery services like Stop and Shop's Peapod. Much harder to get people to go off their lists then, though I suppose that ads might pop up on the site for each items selected. Then you might see something like "If you like that cereal, you'll love these granola bars."

Re: It Only Takes One
Ariella,

Data I've seen show that impulse buying is now the most common way (though not the majority); more stuff is bought by people who go into the store just to go into the store than it is by people who go to get something specific right then, people who go with a list, and the various other combinations.  So I wonder how much longer attracting impulse buyers will be a major goal; nowadays, that's who's in the aisles anyway.

Just one more way that Depression culture is fading from living memory, I guess.

Re: It Only Takes One
@Joe my marketing-oriented mind pictures a whole campaign built on that concept: candy for the young at heart. Really, though, as a parent, I didn't like having candy right at kid eye-level. I recall that one of mine helped herself without my knowledge once or twice when she was very young. So I had to return to the store either to pay for the candy or to return it.

Re: It Only Takes One
@Carol: Truthfully, in my own dealings with companies and observations of CSOs/CISOs, I have come to the opinion that a lot of CSOs and CISOs are vastly underqualified for their jobs -- largely, I suspect, because companies are so desperate for mere "check-the-box" compliance and also because of "purple squirrel" hiring tactics that don't get into aspects of what truly makes a great (or even decent) CSO/CISO.

@John: That's interesting.  I imagine the same is not true about razors...although I have bought shaving stuff on impulse ("oh, that reminds me!") before...
