1778619 - Why I Quit Security For A While And Came Back (But Might Leave Again)

‐ Oct 19, 2021 4:30pm

After having every job in information security (from log review to CISO), I took a break to spend time running production engineering for a major PaaS vendor. I learned a lot about the fine details of engineering management, but I learned a whole lot more about how security could be done more effectively. I'm back in the security world and starting to implement what I learned. Here's a little bit of insight that might make a difference in your world. But I might not stay - there are a lot of good ways to accomplish things, but I'm even less sure that security should be a separate discipline. Hard-won lessons to share.

Learning Objectives:

  • Clearly describe the key points of interaction failure between engineering and security organizations.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the knowledge and perception gap between engineering and security cultures.
  • Conduct analysis of their own organizational interactions to find opportunities for improvement.
