Session: Security Data – GPS For Application Teams
Over the past few years, Target has shifted the role of its security team from enforcer to teacher. Along the way, Target asked itself, “Is it possible to give thousands of engineers a single metric for security?” Target’s cyber security team has developed a Product Intelligence model that has transformed how the company manages application security. This session will discuss our success and lessons learned in implementing a “credit score” to our measurement practices along with other key elements in our application security program.
