This talk will take the audience on a journey from the origin of the security architecture, traditional waterfall framework and the evolution of those in a traditional DEV-SEC-OPS. It also addresses the difference between traditional command and control governance and the solution to avoid starving automation and innovation with traditional security governance.

  • Trust and Verify your developer
  • “Build vs FIX” and “own your crappy code”
  • Downtendring vulnerability threshold
  • License to code
We will explore:
  • Security Gates and why they do not always work in dev-ops
  • Security governance: how to avoid starving innovation but do a security review
  • ESF: Enterprise Security Framework - Different between products, Environment/Platforms and applications
  • Modern SLDC cycle:
    • How to secure the design phase (design and requirements)

    • How to convert threat modelling in use stories
  • Risk management and roles in DEV-SEC-OPS

The mentorship community is inclusive with a focus to empower women in cybersecurity as well as young minds. I am a mentor and coach in the community and I’ve launched the activity in order to help the future generation of cybersecurity expert.
