How Stitch Fix is Building a High-Performing, DevOps Focused Security Team
Building a security team isn’t easy, let alone a high-performing one. With the expansion of DevOps practices requiring faster delivery times throughout the CI/CD pipeline, security teams feel even more pressure to become an enabler instead of a blocker.
As you look to build out your security team or expand your security skills in a modern, DevOps focused organization, you’ll likely encounter a few challenges along the way. In this webinar, we discuss many of the challenges Charles Nwatu, Director of Security at Stitch Fix, is facing while building his own high-performing, DevOps focused security team, and how he is overcoming them.
This webinar is for any security professional looking to:
- Better integrate security practices with their DevOps teams
- Build the skills sets needed to work fluidly with DevOps teams
- Automate more security into their SLDC
- Shift their security operations left and right
