Cybersecurity is no longer about installing firewalls and antivirus software and forgetting about it. It’s an ongoing endeavor that demands continuous attention to overcome the challenges that lie ahead. In that sense, cybersecurity in the digital age complements the DevOps approach to developing, managing and maintaining continuous delivery and quality.
However, this doesn’t seem to translate seamlessly into the real world. According to the Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report 2020, as much as 92% of IT professionals stated that their organizations weren’t adequately prepared to secure public cloud services. Furthermore, the study found that cybersecurity teams were continuously playing catch-up instead of getting a step ahead of bad actors.
