Application Security and SecDevOps | Speaker: Altaz Valani

In a post COVID-19 world, privacy concerns in software are critical. We need to collect, store, share, and archive information in a way that respects the privacy of individuals within organizations. While traditional data classification can help identify key assets, little is being done in the SecDevOps lifecycle to ensure that privacy concerns are elevated as first-order citizens.

We will explain and demonstrate, using the ISO 27000 series of standards, how to make the SecDevOps value stream radiate relevant privacy metrics so that auditors and legal teams can make informed decisions about privacy risk.

Ultimately, the SecDevOps value stream has to provide business value. We will explain how business values of cybersecurity resiliency, compliance, and revenue all come together. It is no longer a zero-sum game across these business priorities - all must be met with the right balance.
