  4. Cloud and Infrastructure Security: Architect secure cloud deployments and infrastructure as code (IaC) practices, ensuring that cloud environments and container orchestration systems (e.g., Kubernetes) are configured according to security best practices.
  5. Security Automation: Develop automation scripts and tools to streamline security processes, including automated threat detection and response mechanisms, to support rapid development cycles.
  6. Security Champion Program: Establish and lead a Security Champion program within development teams to foster a culture of security awareness and best practices sharing.
