Commercial best practices for DevSecOps in Defense

Azure Gov Team

The Department of Defense has taken several measures to integrate a DevSecOps strategy across its entire organization. For example, the DoD Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative is a joint effort on behalf of the Chief Information Officer and the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment to integrate tools and services that support DevSecOps.

As DoD moves forward on its DevSecOps journey, there are myriad lessons learned and best practices from the commercial sector to leverage. In a six-part article series with Government Executive Media Group (including Nextgov and Defense One), Microsoft experts are sharing some of these insights and practices.

In our first article, Rapid Deployment: Why DoD Is Ready for the DevSecOps Era, Sujit Mohanty, chief technology officer for Microsoft Defense, discusses DoD and the DevSecOps approach; the importance of continuous focus on security; and the keys to building strong teams and processes.
