On Cybersecurity and IT Teams of the Future, We’ll All Be SREs

DevOps is perhaps the most important innovation in the IT and security sectors since the invention of the personal computer. The philosophy is so foreign though, compared to what IT and security staffs have traditionally done, that many do not understand the implications. It is tough for them, and their management chains, to fully wrap their heads around the potential impact to their organizations in the future. However, now is the time to embrace the idea not just for IT administration but for InfoSec too. Inserting InfoSec within the Devops ideology could be the key to building more sustainable and effective security teams. In other words, security team members need to become site reliability engineers alongside their IT peers.
