Critical Software Security

The Department of the Navy is establishing a DevSecOps task force to help speed up software development and delivery and improve data security, FCW reported Friday.

The Jan. 15th memo states that the task force will provide the information superiority executive steering group with a set of recommendations within two months to facilitate the creation of a strategy for enterprisewide DevSecOps implementation. 

The recommendations should cover the framework for differentiated and common DevSecOps infrastructure, identify gaps that inhibit the maturation of DevSecOps, management and governance of the DevSecOps enterprise and criteria for streamlined cyber assessment of the DevSecOps infrastructure.

Aaron Weis, chief information officer at the Department of the Navy, co-wrote the memo with James Geurts, assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition. Geurts and Weis are previous Wash100 Award recipients.
