about this book
I wrote this book for Sam, a fictional character who has been doing IT for as long as she can remember, and who spent the last couple of years doing operations and a bit of dev on the side. Sam recently took a job at Flycare as a DevOps engineer. Flycare is building a web and mobile platform for managing medical invoices and billing. It’s a small start-up: two ops on staff, five devs full time, and a couple of people on the business side; small, but with big health-data risks, and they hope Sam can build them a secure platform to run their web services.
A challenge is exactly what Sam is looking for, but securing a high-risk platform in a start-up where developers like to deploy code in Docker containers from GitHub three times a day is going to be difficult. She needs some help, and I wrote Securing DevOps to help Sam.
