Building Relationships for Better Security

Presented by: Darylynn Ross

It's 2024 and software engineering teams and security teams are still struggling to figure out how we can all just get along. Engineering teams are commonly frustrated and annoyed at all the extraneous stuff security wants them to do. And security teams are commonly frustrated with the lack of results they see in vulnerability remediation and secure coding efforts. There's got to be a better way to work together.

Come explore how building relationships between engineering teams and security teams can remove some of the frustration we all feel in the software product development world. Initiatives like a security champions program, a security community of practice, meaningful training, and team collaboration can make a difference. This session isn't just for managers or security practitioners, it's for everyone who works in IT and deals with security challenges.
