Security breaches affecting millions of consumers are shining an enormous new spotlight on cybersecurity concerns and risks.

So it’s auspicious timing that just a few days before the incident was made public, Caleb Queern, a security services-focused member of KPMG’s Advisory group, sat down with Stan Lepeak to talk about the role DevOps can play in organizations’ security operations centers.

Key points Caleb and Stan discussed during this podcast include:

  • That DevOps, at its heart, is about enabling a business’ product management, software development, and operations professionals to communicate and collaborate to produce the right software fast enough to meet market demands
  • In a security operations center – the responsibility of which is to reduce risk – DevOps can help identify process bottlenecks, playbook misstep problems, and other issues that can leave the organization open to risk
  • Why automation is a critical component of a DevOps approach, enabling the business to get higher value work out of the same resources
  • What leaders should do to push DevOps in their security operations centers, in order to reduce the most risk in the shortest period of time
