What is Practical DevSecOps?
Practical DevSecOps offers vendor-neutral, practical, and hands-on DevSecOps training and certification programs for IT professionals.
Learning is focused on modern areas of information security including DevOps Security, Cloud-Native Security, Cloud Security, and Container security.
Certifications from Practical DevSecOps are achieved after rigorous tests (12-24 hour exams) of skill and are considered the most valuable in the information security field.
Through Lumify Work, professionals in Australia can access Practical DevSecOps training.
If you wonder about what a DevSecOps certification is and which are the best, a DevSecOps credential validates your skills and knowledge in integrating security to web development. TechTarget lists the Certified DevSecOps Professional (CDP) certification as one of the best.
The Certified DevSecOps Professional instructor-led or self-paced training is ideal preparation for the CDP exam, teaching candidates about DevSecOps processes, tools, and techniques. The course also offers guidance on creating and maintaining a DevSecOps pipeline, and you'll learn to use software composition analysis (SCA), static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), and security as code.
The CDP credential indicates that the holder has the practical expertise to understand, implement, and manage the DevSecOps program in an organisation. A person who is a CDP can assess the current state of DevSecOps, embed security as part of DevOps, manage vulnerabilities, and improve the overall Maturity Level.
Prerequisites include a basic understanding of Linux commands and application security. This course is available at Lumify Work as a three-day instructor-led course** or self-paced training. Students earn CDP certification after passing a 12-hour practical exam.
Practical DevSecOps has three additional DevSecOps certifications:
Certified DevSecOps Architect. This focuses on DevSecOps best practices for AWS. It is recommended candidates complete the CDP certification before attempting this exam.
Certified DevSecOps Leader. This leadership exam validates that managers know how to influence DevSecOps practices from a business perspective.
Certified DevSecOps Expert. This is focused on infrastructure as code, compliance as code, vulnerability management, and more. This course is available through Lumify Work as self-paced training. Candidates must obtain the CDP certification first, before attempting this course.
** Note this is a closed course and requires a minimum of 10 students to run. It is delivered by a Practical DevSecOps trainer on behalf of Lumify Work.
