Slide deck from the talk can be found here:


For years, we’ve been told the key to security is technology. We purchase and deploy technology to create layers behind layers, making our walls taller and taller to keep the bad guys out. Sadly, it’s not working.

What does work is combining lessons learned in other industries to the security world. By examining best practices within Lean Manufacturing, Agile Development and Rugged DevOps, this presentation delivers ways you can be successful in security, not by purchasing technology, but by:

Effectively using what you have and what you can get for free

Re-allocating security budget from the point of diminishing return

Identifying and maximizing learning opportunities

Engaging in small, inexpensive test projects

Choosing custom and rational metrics to measure what matters

Replacing defective systems with ones that grow with you

Turning security from a catch-up game into one of strategic and competitive advantage.

Success in security depends on the right mix of people, technology and process. Without all three, you are doomed to failure.

We look forward to seeing you there!
