This service-tailorable “DevSecOps for the DoD” foundations workshop provides an overview of how DevSecOps assists DoD organizations transition from existing policies, processes and procedures into a more efficient, effective and automated process using secure, reliable, and rapid software development, delivery, and deployment.

It facilitates introductions to DoD DSO frameworks such as DoD DevSecOps Platform (DSOP) and Navy’s Compile to Combat in 24 Hours (C2C24) DSO framework; successful security approaches that support continuous ATO (cATO) (pioneered by Army leadership); and DoD Enterprise Services (e.g., Air Force Platform One and Navy’s Agile Core Services). These frameworks and approaches enable PEOs to deliver capabilities securely, reliably, and rapidly to the Warfighter in potentially hours.

This workshop covers the “Why,” the “What,” and the “How” in a flow that explains the foundational blocks of DoD DSO implementation. During this offering, Full-Stack DSO Engineers and industry practitioners provide a live, hands-on DSO pipeline demonstration showing how Test Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), and Continuous Delivery and Deployment (CD) enables (a) DoD’s strategy to Shift Left and (b) the rapid delivery of valuable capabilities (via software) to the Warfighter at the speed of relevance.

Participants identify their top needs to implement DSO such as leading change of the "frozen middle" and overcoming a risk averse culture. As a group, the participants discuss how to overcome these barriers, and commit to specific behaviors they would implement/lead upon return to home station.
