In DevOps everyone performs security work, whether they like it or not. With a ratio of 100/10/1 for Development, Operations, and Security, it’s impossible for the security team alone to get it all done. We must build security into each of “the three ways”; automating and/or improving efficiency of all security activities, speeding up feedback loops for security related activities, and providing continuous learning opportunities in relation to security. While it may sound like the security team needs to learn to sprint, give feedback, and teach at the same time, the real challenge is creating a culture that embodies the mindset that security is everybody's job.
