Software Factories link development, security and operations teams into DevSecOps frameworks to ensure security is built in from the start. Enabled by cloud-based apps and automation, Lockheed Martin’s Software Factory delivers cybersecure mission capabilities to help our customers solve today and tomorrow’s toughest challenges. With our DevSecOps approach, our teams bring software capabilities to a new realm of cybersecurity from software build out to testing right through operations. In environments demanding faster, leaner and more secure solutions, it’s imperative that today’s software applications be built on up-front security.  

Alan Hohn, chief engineer, Lockheed Martin Software Factory sat down with SC Media to discuss security practices and software development processes during CyberRisk Alliance’s “Secure Cloud Series: DevSecOps in High-Velocity Environments” with Jill Aitoro, editor-in-chief, CyberRisk Alliance. Alan shared insights on security ‘must-haves’ noting the importance of incorporating security into everything we do and the role everyone plays in driving security within a DevSecOps environment.
