Peter is the IT manager of a leading electronics manufacturing company based in Dresden, Germany. Recently, his organization embarked on a DevOps initiative to upgrade its Salesforce org to deliver better services to its clients. The manufacturer expected the DevOps project to proceed smoothly without any problems. Unfortunately, the project suffered from a leakage of confidential customer data; this resulted in a major investigation by regulatory authorities, which culminated in the imposition of a hefty penalty amounting to a fourth of the company’s annual turnover. Peter was squarely blamed for the organization’s predicament.
Does this story sound familiar? In the past, most companies tended to delegate the management of the security aspect of a software development program to a particular team in the last stage of development. That didn’t create many problems as development cycles lasted several months or even years. But the days of ultra-long development cycles are over. Today, most firms utilize DevOps to facilitate very short and frequent development cycles, but poor data safety processes can mar even highly effective DevOps projects.
How can this problem be overcome? What does it take to ensure absolute safety of sensitive data in a DevOps initiative? Many companies are embracing a culture of information security in their DevOps programs, resulting in the expansion of the scope of DevOps, leading to the emergence of DevSecOps (Development, Security and Operations). As the name suggests, the data security aspect is given as much importance as adding new features to a software system rapidly, with high efficacy. Here’s an interesting infographic that shares 5 proven tips to implement Salesforce DevSecOps in an effective manner.
