Enabling DevSecOps for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

| | |

AWS FH Whitepaper

DevSecOps is a shift in methodology where application security is introduced earlier and reinforced throughout each phase of an operation. This whitepaper expands on Foghorn’s approach for building a compliant cloud using these four principles:

  • People – establishing a culture of transparency and accountability
  • Process – simplified steps for an approved roadmap that normalizes safe practices
  • Technology – leveraging layered defenses and utilizing automation
  • Governance – supporting people, processes, and technology with policies

It discusses how Foghorn leverages the available tools in Amazon Web Services (AWS) to support DevSecOps, but also the culture changes necessary to avoid the ever-present threat of human error.  

It also covers the role of the customer in security for front-facing operations, and how evolving threats must be met with evolving security applications like containers, as well as a checklist for security best practices in AWS.
