Presented by Denim Group Principal John Dickson

Secure360 2020

The mandate for digital transformation is forcing companies to innovate faster in order to provide more value to customers and bring products and services to the market more quickly. Technological innovations such as the cloud, microservice architectures, and CI/CD pipelines are being adopted to support the increased pace of development and more easily address scaling requirements. This upheaval presents both risks and opportunities for security leaders. The successful leaders view this transition as a clean-slate opportunity to “get security right” and will restructure their teams and technologies to deeply-embed security throughout the new tech stack. This session will cover emerging strategies that security leaders are using to ensure they keep up with this massive industry change.
