Session: DevSecOps Journey in DoD Enterprise
Today's DoD software acquisition and development is not responsive to our warfighter needs. As a result, DoD's ability to keep pace with our potential adversaries is falling behind. The only solution is that use DevSecOps as modern software development practices, processes and tools to revolutionize the Department's ability to provide responsive, timely and secure software capabilities for our warfighters. However this is not easy task to implement DevSecOps across various systems. Although lots of barriers from cultural to architecture and tooling complexity, DoD is adapting DevSecOps quickly.
