How to Build a Security Team and Program presented at BSidesSanFrancisco 2017

by E. Coleen Coolidge,

Summary : I will share how I was able to build a security team and program from scratch at Twilio, an SF startup that just recently went IPO. I will be telling war stories that demonstrate what problems they will face and how I was eventually able to overcome them (hint: it wasn't easy, but I'll be giving up my secrets). At the end of the presentation, the security practitioners in attendance will have a guide they can use when trying to accomplish the same thing at their own company. Ultimately, we're all on the same side, and if I can give security practitioners an advantage with my experience, I sure will.
