Democratizing Security: A Story of Security Decentralization

Posted on in Presentations

Medallia started an experiment of democratizing security across the company to make security everyone’s business, and the results were eye opening. This is a story of initiatives to drive DevSecOps, empower the people and introduce transparency. The results were improved vulnerability remediation, proactive participation and a culture of security ownership across the organization.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn why decentralization of security is relevant and important.
2: Learn about initiatives we took to make security decision making inclusive and transparent.
3: Obtain a checklist to start implementing immediately for democratizing security.

Experience in a management role where audience has faced the challenges of making security effective when collaborating with other business units; leadership challenges in security; vulnerability management.
