Creating Security Champions to Improve Your DevOps Security Posture
Paul Farrington, EMEA CTO at Veracode | Calvin Mills, Software Engineer | Jamie Keegan, QA Test Lead
About this talk
What if I told you that you could improve the rate at which you fix your security issues up to 88% faster, without spending money on expensive consultants or blinky lights. 'Security Champions' could be the answer.
Gartner predicts 3.4 million unfilled security roles by 2022 - simply because there are not enough expertise. DevOps teams in particular are leading the way in identifying Security Champions to help promote secure coding and reduce friction within teams. Rather than relying exclusively on a centralised security team, that can’t scale - we can go faster by nurturing security advocates in each development team. We talk about how to harness the existing talent in your teams and provide insights into how you can force-multiply the effect of security across your organisation, in a way that is likely to be received positively by your development teams.
