With the rapid growth of technology, the potential for data to be stolen has grown exponentially. Therefore, security needs to become a higher priority in applications. DevSecOps is a concept which seeks to do just that. With this presentation, I seek to create a means to inform IT professionals why security is a rising concern and methods to improve the security of applications through DevSecOps. With reports on data breaches, this presentation first emphasizes how security is a growing concern. Then, through articles written by IT professionals, it focuses on how DevSecOps can transform the application development cycle to create more secure applications. Through this practice, companies can have faster response times and fend off more attacks, leading to an overall more protected system.
