The Six Pillars of DevSecOps: Automation paper published by the Cloud Security Alliance provides a holistic framework for facilitating security automation within DevSecOps as well as best practices.

“It’s vital that today’s DevOps teams be agile, able to address user requirements dynamically, release features incrementally, and deliver at a faster pace than their predecessors and do it all without sacrificing security. Security controls can’t be successfully integrated without automated security capabilities that allow for timely and meaningful feedback. By adopting even modest automated security capabilities entire classes of risk can potentially be eliminated,” said Sean Heide, a research analyst at Cloud Security Alliance. 

The document shows what types of triggers and checkpoints should occur in the delivery pipelines as well as how to balance resources in conjunction with deliverability.
