About this talk

Security Partners at Adobe provide product teams with guidance needed to help improve overall security posture. They partner with risk management, operational and application security teams to help product teams create unified security roadmaps and provide needed visibility for executive teams. This partnership has helped to elevate security and risk conversations into stronger business value conversations and improve overall risk management across Adobe. Astrid Bailey, Security Partner Program Owner, will talk about her experience in building this program and scaling it using a tiered model to be effective across 200 product teams at Adobe. She will discuss lessons learned as she and her colleagues: - Worked to get security requests positioned more strategically in product roadmaps. - Made use of automation and standardization to help ensure management and executive teams are getting the information they need to make better security decisions. - Improved the overall relationships between key security team leaders and product team leaders. The best practices learned in developing this program will be beneficial to any organization looking to strengthen and improve the effectiveness of the relationship between security and other technical teams. Such an effort can help ensure your teams are even more invested in your overall risk management strategy. About the speaker: Astrid Bailey has been an IT project/program manager for over a decade.
