Expecting your (relatively) small staff of security specialists we all have to handle security, risk management, and good governance entirely on their own is a recipe for disaster. While specialists are critical to ensuring products and processes are designed well, promote security, and ease compliance, real security and good governance requires dissemination of knowledge throughout the organization. To truly understand what you are securing, and who does that work, you have to play in their sandbox, integrate into their existing processes, remove overhead wherever possible, and gather that data, data, data… did I mention the data? To scale, push knowledge and requirements downstream as much as possible, in the language your teams can use.
To scale to properly meet evolving risk management and compliance challenges, your own teams need to operate as a service. Automate processes wherever possible to help capture the necessary data to ensure good security is happening – and constantly evolve and improve the quality of that information to ensure it is driving expected behavior. Flow that data into simple dashboards that can help executives understand that things are really working as expected, and where they need to take action. After all, if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough. In this talk you’ll learn from Julia Knecht how Adobe was able to make this work in relatively short order and how you can take all of the best practices we learned and developed back to your organization and create your own “culture of security.”
