About the Survey
As IT workloads transition to the cloud, there’s a shift in how organizations develop and deliver systems—and how security must be practiced. Deploying and running production systems has become abstracted from the underlying hardware and network.
Today, the focus for both operations and security professionals is rapidly becoming centered on API calls to services, and the need to understand software development challenges in order to address information security. In short, the future of security is security as code.
This SANS survey will explore what this shift means for the modern enterprise and its security program. How will this shift affect strategic priorities, staff training and the needed investments in technology and tooling? Additionally, the survey will explore how security professionals must adapt to this new world.
Key questions will include:
- What must they understand about software development in order to meet the demand of high-velocity delivery?
- What are the necessary skills for architecting secure software as it is being written—and catching security vulnerabilities before production?
- What is the impact of different cloud architectures and platforms on this effort, including risks, strengths and weaknesses?
