TLDR: Security as Code (SaC) is the practice of integrating security measures and policies directly into the software development process. This involves automating security controls and configurations using code-based techniques such as scripts, templates, and Infrastructure as Code tools. By treating compliance policies and threat detection as code, businesses can benefit from early detection and remediation of security vulnerabilities. SaC is an efficient and affordable way for businesses to promote greater security by enforcing automated compliance. The key principles and practices of SaC include building security into the software development lifecycle, integrating policies into the DevOps pipeline, continuously monitoring security policies, enabling visibility into cybersecurity alert mechanisms, and keeping a record of security configurations. SaC fits seamlessly with DevOps and platform engineering, supporting Infrastructure as Code and continuous integration/continuous deployment to form a more holistic DevSecOps strategy.
