According to the Verizon Data Violation Investigation Report of 2021, between 90 and 95% of confirmed data breaches involve attacks on web applications. To defend against these attacks, organizations must adopt security as a critical component of the software development lifecycle.

In response to this issue, DevSecOps adoption is expected to increase dramatically over the next few years. Companies will need training for each functional function to move away from the development and security departments that operate as autonomous functions, to an integration of development, security and operations as a single process. Executives, development leaders, quality assurance experts, technical project managers, product managers, and developers will need training to help them understand threats and their role in incorporating security. in their software development.
