Advocate Security for Your Customers by Ensuring the Safety of Your Products


Advocate Security for Your Customers by Ensuring the Safety of Your Products

Featuring: Alex Kreilein, VP of Product Security, Qualys and Sean Martin, ITSP Magazine

CISOs and InfoSec teams in charge of product security realize how the drive for innovation can speed up their organization’s product release philosophy. Software development teams want applications to continuously expand functionality to solve more customer pain points and go to market before the competition. But it’s just as vital for CISOs and InfoSec teams to be product security advocates for customers—to ensure their accounts and sensitive data are safe from bad actors.

In this Blue Lava Community – Crucial Conversations episode, Alex Kreilein, VP of Product Security, Qualys joins Sean Martin, ITSP Magazine to discuss:
  • What it takes for CISOs and InfoSec teams to become security advocates for customers by ensuring the safety of software products
  • The importance for CISOs and InfoSec teams to understand the objectives of the software development team and to interject product security early into the software development lifecycle.
  • How to make success metrics transparent and team members more accountable.
