Git Pre-commit Hooks

Git hooks are scripts that Git executes before or after events such as commit, push, and receive. Pre-commit hooks are useful in detecting secrets automatically before developers commit work locally on their machines.

The Cyber Security team has recommended a pre-commit git hook called Detect Secrets for preventing secrets being commited to git.
