It's not easy to be a cybersecurity professional. The pressure to be right each and every time is immense. After all, cyber criminals only need to be right once to gain access to your systems, compromising your data and assets. No one likes to fail – especially when it comes to keeping organizations secure. But experiencing failure can be positive – leading to increased knowledge, enhanced skills and stronger defenses. Join Billy Spears on his inspirational journey to success, where he will share:

  • How you can effectively raise security awareness in your organization
  • Strategies that can shift security priorities so the right issues receive the attention that they need
  • How to bring the CISO role closer to the business to better align security with company objectives

Today, Infosec, product security and DevOps often work in silos with different and sometimes competing objectives. DevOps and product security teams focus on agility and highly customized solutions, while InfoSec teams focus on long-term enterprise-wide solutions. How do we break down those silos to create an environment of “responsible enablement” – where product and enterprise security teams collaborate and utilize synergies, and where security is seen as a complement, not a limitation, to product innovation? This cross-industry panel explores best practices for answering that question, ways to overcome common challenges, and their views on DevOps, product security and the future of enterprise security.

In this keynote, you’ll learn how to:

  • Build security into the product development process, whatever the product
  • Establish relationships between enterprise security, product security and product development
  • Accommodate variations in security posture across product lines
