The Human Side of DevSecOps: Building Trust with Software Development

Presented by

Chris Kirsch | Director of Product Marketing, Veracode

About this talk

With DevSecOps, it’s become even more important for security to build a strong relationship with engineering. However, “relationships and trust” is not a topic that is typically taught when you are taking a cybersecurity degree. In this session, we’ll look at the people side of the equation, taught by a DEF CON Black Badge winner of the Social Engineering CTF. While the techniques in this session are used by social engineers, con artists and the FBI, they can equally be applied to honest relationship building. It’s the genuine intent that matters, and you’ll need to invest into the relationship over time. The difference is that you’ll build trust faster and with a higher success rate because you understand the mechanics. You can also apply the same principles in other professional and personal relationships. Join this session to learn about: •Lowering barriers when reaching out •Understanding and initiating trust •Using positive body language •Making your ask in the right way •Suspending your ego, and why it’s important •Validating others with empathy •Figuring out common ground to build on •Framing the situation from their perspective
