DevSecOps Engineering and Automation for Smart Manufacturing Services (40 hours)

DevOps and Containerization in I4 Application
  • Note: This module is also referred to as "DevOps and Containerization in Industry 4.0 Application".
  • The course is co-organised with NUS-ISS.

Introduction

Manufacturing companies stay at the cutting edge by staying lean, agile and encourage innovation with reliable and low risks releases, making it possible to adapt continuous updates in line with user feedback, market shifts, and changes to business strategies. This process requires companies to adopt cybersecurity and the flexibility to integrate quickly and easily with smart manufacturing services in the area of industrial internet of things (IIoT), shopfloor automation, and other services in logistics and enterprise.

The Information Security layer provides safety in software deployment by constantly testing security policies and requirements. With a response time that is quick when a new vulnerability is identified and do timely patches.

Teams who adopt DevSecOps methodology drives the entire delivery process in an accelerated manner, while also improving the quality of software release. Teams responsible for testing, support, development and operations, work together as one delivery team. As technology advances at a rapid pace, the traditional approach to information security has struggled to keep up with the demands of the fast-paced development. This brought about the emergence of DevSecOps methodology - an extension of DevOps - which aims to remedy this by embracing security as an essential part of DevOps culture.

About the Programme

This programme consists of 5 full-day sessions covering theory and practical methods covering real-world manufacturing solutions for an in-depth understanding of DevSecOps Engineering and Automation concepts, practices and tools.

At the end of this programme, participants will be able to apply various software development life cycle practices (SDLC) to an agile environment, implement DevSecOps methodology, workflow and tools to the system and perform secure continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) for on-premise and on cloud environments.

Who Should Attend

This programme is targeted at Delivery Managers, Configuration Managers, Project Leaders, Software Developers, Software Designers and others who need to implement DevSecOps Engineering and Automation methods in their projects. It is applicable for organisations integrating security into their DevOps framework and enhance the process seamlessly using the right DevSecOps tools and processes.
