1. Adopting a DevSecOps model
The collaboration inherent to the model ensures that security is integrated across the entire DevOps lifecycle. The core values of collaboration and shared responsibility present in DevOps, are also present in the DevSecOps workflow. This approach requires that the entire organization adheres to security practices. For example, security teams should be trained to work with APIs or developers to automate security tests.

2. Automation
Automating any process you do more than once will at once help scale operations and dramatically prevent human error.

  1. Developing security policies
    Have clear and detailed security policies in place. This can help ensure everyone in the organization is on the same page.

4. Transition slowly
When introducing security tools and procedures, start slowly, introducing one tool at a time. This can prevent teams from rushing to implement the tools and controls without understanding them fully.

5. Assign a single person with security accountability
When you reduce responsibility to a single person you prevent the teams from forgetting or overlooking security controls and requirements.

6. Vulnerability management
Implement an automated system for scanning, assess and remediate vulnerabilities. This can help security teams ensure the application is secure before releasing it into production. Implementing other tests such as penetration testing can provide an added layer of security, identifying weaknesses early in the cycle.

7. Threat modeling
Threat modeling simulates attacks with the aim to test the team’s response. You can then assess the risks your application can face and how your team can respond to a security incident.
