    • Presenting at Firetalks "Specialists versus Jack-Of-All-Trades" by Nicole Schwartz (@CircuitSwan)

    • Abstract: Information Technology (IT) has grown up a lot, and security only really became a field recently. Those who have had a variety of experiences, or those who have grown up along with the field of security, have had the advantage of being Jack-Of-All-Trades. Those who know how many of the pieces fit together (even if they can’t do the other roles) have a better understanding of upstream and downstream risks, more ways to look at problems, and a larger selection of solutions to choose from. I want to advocate stepping back from being only specialists, leverage conferences to learn, and network to grow your knowledge of the whole IT sphere.

    • Are you ready to leverage DevSecOps? Get ready and use it for good.

    • As a security practitioner, the trend of Agile and DevSecOps is coming. Whether developers or management are pushing for it, you should be prepared. DevSecOps sets security as a metric of success for developers and encourages security to be a consideration continually through a project lifecycle. This is a vast improvement to the usual methods of taking security into consideration only at the end, in the beginning, or avoiding talking to security at all. You should be seizing the opportunity to leverage the popular DevSecOps movement to your advantage. I want to arm you with ideas on education, resources, tools, and practices to do DevSecOps well from a Security department standpoint.
