“DevSecOps Foundation along with the certification gave me the foundation to understand the culture and what goals we need to pursue. By honing those concepts, they positioned me differently to meet challenges. I understood the importance of doing a safety “shift to the left”, and how to think of a continuous improvement process where our products or services have a “safe” conception from the beginning regardless of the language used, independent of technology, and based on a process.”

– Santiago Fernandez, Chief Information Security Officer
