This textbook was written from the perspective of someone who began his software security career in 2005, long before the industry began focusing on it. This is an excellent perspective for students who want to learn about securing application development. After having had made all the rookie mistakes the author realized that software security is a human factors issue rather than a technical or process issue alone. Throwing technology into an environment that expects people to deal with it but failing to prepare them technically and psychologically with the knowledge and skills needed, is a certain recipe for bad results.
Practical Security for Agile and DevOps is a collection of best practices and effective implementation recommendations that are proven to work. The text leaves out the boring details of software security theory out of the discussion as much as possible to concentrate on practical applied software security useful to professionals. It is as much a book for students own benefit as it is for the benefit of their academic careers and organizations. Professionals who are skilled in secure and resilient software development and related tasks are in tremendous demand. This demand will increase exponentially for the foreseeable future. As students integrate the text’s best practices into their daily duties, their value increases to their companies, management, community, and industry.
