Every year, speakers bring their unique insights and perspectives to the RSA Conference. In February 2020, Security Compass’s Altaz Valani, Security Compass’ Research Director, and Hasan Yasar, SSD Division at Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University presented: At What Point Does DevSecOps Become Too Risky for the Business?
This session covered the implementation of an automated, continuous risk pipeline that demonstrates how cyber-resiliency and compliance risk can be traced to and from DevSecOps teams working in the SDLC program and project levels. It also focused on asset management, DevSecOps tooling, policy-to-procedure platform and risk management platform.
