Keynote: Talent matters. You matter. presented at GlobalAppSec-DC 2019

by Caroline Wong,

Summary : The internet wasn’t built with security in mind, the world has a massive talent shortage, and we can’t rely on automation to solve everything.If you’re on an application security team, I’m willing to bet you have more to do than time and resources to do it. Maybe one of your colleagues left for a new job last month, and there are two additional unfilled positions on your team. You could actually be in a position where you’re trying to do the jobs of 4 people.Talent matters. You matter.This talk is about preventing and addressing burnout for overworked application security professionals. It’s also about how to attract, retain, and grow a great team.
