  9. we’re  too  li@le  to  fail     (at  security)

  10. agility  increases  risk

  11. what  is  con$nuous  security?

  12. design   code  stuff   idea   test   deploy

  15. con$nuous

  16. principles  of  con$nuous  security

  17. automated   autonomous   integrated   repeatable   scalable

  18. automated “the  best  technical  people  I  know  work   really

     hard  to  make  themselves  redundant”
  19. Deployment Provisioning Tes$ng Sta$c  analysis Vulnerability  mgmt

  20. autonomous “no  boMlenecks,  breakdowns  or  ripples”

  28. Standard  Security  Stories h@p:/ /

  29. scalable “more  than  just   a  single  team   experiment”

  30. Business  as  usual Managed Measured Controlled Universal Special Proof  of

     concept Blue  sky Experiment Innova$on

  35. Tes$ng Automated  ZAP   tes$ng Selenium Standard  security   tests

  36. Deployment Vulnerability  checks Infrastructure  as  code On  demand  deployments

  37. Collabora$on Security  guild Chat  ops Hack  events

  38. Good  stuff    speed  of  change skill  level  increase increased

     awareness priority  of  legacy  use  of  security  resource
  39. Lessons  learned  security  guilds tool  cost tool  quality approaches training

     at  scale
  40. achieving  con$nuous  security

  41. choose  tools  wisely   integra$ons  with  workflows,  API,  speed

  42. easy  to  digest  resources   keep  your  examples,  templates  and

  43. educate  everyone   skills  are  the  number  one  bo@leneck

  44. give  testers  some  love   test  environments,  clean  test  data

     and  tools
  45. no  special  treatment   legacy  code  needs  security  too

  46. dev  ==  test  ==  prod   remove  the  differences  to

     remove     deployment  complexity
