In the last part of this series, we're going to look at the final stages of the software development life cycle (SDLC)—deployment and operations. As a reminder, in parts one and two, we discussed the overall concept of shifting left for security and compliance, and laid out some best practices for how to do so during the development and testing.
Enterprise cloud adoption is in full swing, therefore cloud security and compliance has become a top priority. Security in the cloud requires different approaches than in the datacenter—and a different mindset. Demonstrating this are movements like DevOps, DevSecOps, and Shift Left, which have begun to transform how Cloud Security Posture.
In an earlier blog post, we discussed at a high level how security can shift left regarding cloud infrastructure. In this post, we'll drill in with more detail on how this can be done through the discrete phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), beginning with the development phase, and extending through testing, and ultimately all.
