If you’re a developer, it’s time to embrace security, not for the higher-ups or the tenacious CISO—but for yourself. Because at the heart of any successful DevOps initiative is you, the developer who drives the software agenda and deploys the code. This means not just nodding enthusiastically during security meetings but actually placing yourself, and the meaningful work you do, at the center of an effective application security (AppSec) program.

Everything is moving fast these days, and the expectation for DevOps is no different. An agile framework underpins successful digital transformation and strong innovation. But without security in the mix, DevOps merely introduces vulnerabilities into the software faster. And this isn’t good for anyone—not the end-user and not the person in charge of building the software. So rather than lament the “soul-crushing” efforts of addressing security in a build, why not just refocus and proactively take a leading role when it comes to AppSec?

Check out these three reasons why you most definitely should!
