Implementing Automated Secrets Detection for Application Security

Dev & Ops teams from large organizations use thousands of secrets like API keys and other credentials in order to interconnect these components together. As a result, they now have access to more sensitive information than companies can keep track of.

The risk is that these secrets are now spreading everywhere. We call “secrets sprawl” the unwanted distribution of secrets in all the systems developers use. Secrets sprawl is even more difficult to control with growing development teams, sometimes spread over multiple geographies. Not even taking into consideration that developers are under hard pressure due to a growing number of technologies to master and shortened release cycles.

In this whitepaper, GitGuardian looks at the implications of secrets sprawl, and presents solutions for Application Security to further secure the SDLC by implementing automated secrets detection in their DevOps pipeline.

Synchronizing Supply & Demand in 2023 and Beyond

Subject matter experts from Kalypso take a probing look at the evolution of the supply chain, where the acceleration of key issues and trends over the past few years has left few industries and businesses unaffected. Volatility and constraints in labor, materials, resources and capacity have been compounded with limited end-to-end visibility and an ever-growing regulatory environment to create increasingly complex challenges for supply chain leaders.

We profile those challenges, as well as the central driving market forces that have created them, before exploring the future state of the supply chain and what actions supply chain leaders should take.

Best Practices for Hiring and Retaining Employees

It costs a lot less to retain an employee than find and train a new hire, so employee retention keeps costs down, quality of service up, and business continuity running predictably. Employee retention rate is the percentage of people who stay during a specified time period, such as a quarter or year. Employee turnover rate is the percentage of people who must be replaced during that specified time. Planned reductions, such as with software that makes employees more productive, do not count toward turnover rate.

The Importance of KPIs

Would an airline pilot ever take flight without knowing that all of the plane’s gauges were functioning and understanding what they were displaying? Of course not! The gauges on the instrument panel are the pilot’s eyes into how every component of the craft is working and where the plane is in the sky, relative to expectations and other aircraft. Flying by gut instinct in today’s crowded skies is essentially flying blind and completely ill-advised.

Similarly, key performance indicators (KPIs) are like those gauges, enabling owners and managers of field service companies to operate with the same degree of visibility and confidence about how business is performing. These metrics demonstrate how well a company is doing relative to expectations and how much actual value the company is delivering to customers. Continually monitoring KPIs can help you minimize business expenses, provide better service, optimize technician productivity, and drive profitability.

Send The Right Techs to The Right Job with ThermoGrid

Before Smart Dispatching, the dispatcher would take the call, look at the day’s schedule, check technician availability, and dispatch the closest tech to the customer’s location.

After talking to the customer, the technician can then start to troubleshoot to find the source of the problem. Unfortunately, more often than not, the tech either doesn’t have the skill set to fix the particular piece of equipment or doesn’t have the parts necessary to do the job on the truck. The project is now delayed, wasting time and narrowing profits.
