DevOps is a quickly-growing phenomenon that is quite literally transforming the way that software is developed, tested and supported in many businesses. Driving the transformation are a number of potential positive business outcomes. From an assurance, governance or security practitioner’s perspective, though, there are some additional aspects that need to be considered, planned for and thought through to ensure that the mission of the organization continues to be protected as these changes occur. This guidance outlines these considerations: the risk of DevOps (in adoption and nonadoption), controls that can help mitigate key risk areas, and specific actions that practitioners can take to ensure that the benefits of DevOps are realized while potential risk is mitigated.

Additional information on DevOps, including critical success factors for DevOps adoption, and challenges to overcome, can be found in DevOps Overview.
