Cybersecurity champions could be your secret weapon in raising employee cyber-awareness

“Security champions programs aim to build a better security culture and get DevOps to create secure software more reliably,” says Dan Cornell, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with US application security company Denim Group.

Cornell is a big proponent of cybersecurity champions and has helped many organizations launch programs. He says their aims vary depending on the industry, regulatory environment and company culture. For DevOps, he says, champions make security knowledge more accessible to the development team.

“It’s a way of pushing security knowledge to the edges of an organization.”
