Pillars of Cloud Security: How “Shift-Left” Enhances a Secure SDLC

Security can be made better and more resilient the earlier it is integrated into the development process. When creating a new system, a security architect should be in the room. The idea of “shift-left,” moving the responsibility for designing and implementing security as early as possible in the software development and system design process, has proven to be an integral benefit to improving security. In addition, doing things this way for resolving problems makes sure they are fixed permanently. One unexpected benefit of shift-left is the way it promotes security education and awareness in every part of an organization.

This webinar, presented by Dan Woods, technology analyst and founder of Early Adopter Research, and Eric Kedrosky, Director of Cloud Security Research and CISO of Sonrai Security, explains the benefits of adopting a shift-left approach to the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and suggests tactics that can bring the practice to life. Here are the questions and topics that will be addressed.

  • Where does the shift-left idea come from and how does it apply to security?
  • How can you tell if your company would benefit from a shift-left methodology?
  • How do you bake security into your secure SDLC and why hasn’t this happened already?
  • What tactics work for adopting shift-left thinking?
  • How does shift-left work for promoting security awareness and education?
