Today's high-speed and rapidly changing development environments demand equally high-speed security practices. Still, achieving security remains a human endeavor, a core part of designing, generating and verifying software. Dr. James Ransome and Brook S.E. Schoenfield have built upon their previous works to explain that security starts with people; ultimately, humans generate software security. People collectively act through a particular and distinct set of methodologies, processes, and technologies that the authors have brought together into a newly designed, holistic, generic software development lifecycle facilitating software security at Agile, DevOps speed. —Eric. S. Yuan, Founder and CEO, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. It is essential that we embrace a mantra that ensures security is baked in throughout any development process. Ransome and Schoenfield leverage their abundance of experience and knowledge to clearly define why and how we need to build this new model around an understanding that the human element is the ultimate key to success. —Jennifer Sunshine Steffens, CEO of IOActive Both practical and strategic, Building in Security at Agile Speed is an invaluable resource for change leaders committed to building secure software solutions in a world characterized by increasing threats and uncertainty. Ransome and Schoenfield brilliantly demonstrate why creating robust software is a result of not only technical, but deeply human elements of agile ways of working. —Jorgen Hesselberg, author of Unlocking Agility and Cofounder of Comparative Agility The proliferation of open source components and distributed software services makes the principles detailed in Building in Security at Agile Speed more relevant than ever. Incorporating the principles and detailed guidance in this book into your SDLC is a must for all software developers and IT organizations. —George K Tsantes, CEO of Cyberphos, former partner at Accenture and Principal at EY Detailing the people, processes, and technical aspects of software security, Building in Security at Agile Speed emphasizes that the people element remains critical because software is developed, managed, and exploited by humans. This book presents a step-by-step process for software security that is relevant to today’s technical, operational, business, and development environments with a focus on what humans can do to control and manage the process in the form of best practices and metrics.

Agile continues to be the most adopted software development methodology among organizations worldwide, but it generally hasn't integrated well with traditional security management techniques. And most security professionals aren’t up to speed in their understanding and experience of agile development. To help bridge the divide between these two worlds, this practical guide introduces several security tools and techniques adapted specifically to integrate with agile development. Written by security experts and agile veterans, this book begins by introducing security principles to agile practitioners, and agile principles to security practitioners. The authors also reveal problems they encountered in their own experiences with agile security, and how they worked to solve them. You’ll learn how to: Add security practices to each stage of your existing development lifecycle Integrate security with planning, requirements, design, and at the code level Include security testing as part of your team’s effort to deliver working software in each release Implement regulatory compliance in an agile or DevOps environment Build an effective security program through a culture of empathy, openness, transparency, and collaboration

"Leading Digital makes the provocative argument that the next imminent phase of digital technology adoption - driven by the convergence of mobility, analytics, social media, cloud computing, and embedded devices - will make everything that's happened so far look like a prelude. The authors, a trio of highly regarded thought leaders on corporate digital transformation, say changes in the digital realm so far have focused on high tech and media companies - but there's still a whopping 94% of the business economy that needs to change. This book will show them how. George Westerman of MIT, Didier Bonnet of Capgemini Consulting, and Andrew McAfee, also at MIT, say there is opportunity for these businesses to learn from those that have already mastered the digital landscape. Based on a study of more than 400 large, mainstream firms in every industry around the globe, the authors usefully break down how these organizations have used their own digital transformation to gain strategic, competitive advantage. Readers will learn how these digital leaders have transformed their businesses through smart and rigorous digital investments, and through smart and effective leadership of the change. Leading Digital offers practical, real-life tested frameworks that can be instantly applied. Case studies include Nike, Caesars, Burberry, Asian Paints, Pages Jaunes, Codelco, and more"--

Nowadays it is impossible to imagine a business without technology as most industries are becoming "smarter" and more tech-driven, ranging from small individual tech initiatives to complete business models with intertwined supply chains and "platform"-based business models. New ways of working, such as agile and DevOps, have been introduced, leading to new risks. These risks come in the form of new challenges for teams working together in a distributed manner, privacy concerns, human autonomy, and cybersecurity concerns. Technology is now integrated into the business discipline and is here to stay leading to the need for a thorough understanding of how to address these risks and all the potential problems that could arise. With the advent of organized crime, such as hacks and denial-of-service attacks, all kinds of malicious actors are infiltrating the digital society in new and unique ways. Systems with poor design, implementation, and configurations are easily taken advantage of. When it comes to integrating business and technology, there needs to be approaches for assuring security against risks that can threaten both businesses and their digital platforms. Strategic Approaches to Digital Platform Security Assurance offers comprehensive design science research approaches to extensively examine risks in digital platforms and offer pragmatic solutions to these concerns and challenges. This book addresses significant problems when transforming an organization embracing API-based platform models, the use of DevOps teams, and issues in technological architectures. Each section will examine the status quo for business technologies, the current challenges, and core success factors and approaches that have been used. This book is ideal for security analysts, software engineers, computer engineers, executives, managers, IT consultants, business professionals, researchers, academicians, and students who want to gain insight and deeper knowledge of security in digital platforms and gain insight into the most important success factors and approaches utilized by businesses.
