In this episode we ask the big
question of "Can security be a part of the 'build/deploy faster!'
culture?" We discuss the need to separate out high/low risk
code, understanding how to deploy dormant components of the
applications, proper testing strategies and branching/merging in a
world where faster isn't just an ask, it's a
need to stay competitive.
A huge thank you to all my guests
for their time and expert insight. The combined talent and
experience of my 3 guests is something you should absolutely take a
listen to, as these gentlemen really know what they're talking
about - whether it's Information/Application
Security, or DevOps ... this is a
discussion that bridges both with expert precision.
- Nick Galbreath - Nick's
Linked-In profile says he's been at 5 early to very early startups,
all sold, IPO'd or huge - all dealing with massive scaling in load
and large data sets. FaceBook now owns a half-dozen of his
patents on social graphs, and Google is using some of his code in
Chrome! On top of that, he's written a book on cryptography
too... when he's not out building start-ups, Nick's
speaking/teaching or hacking away at code to find better, bigger
exploits and fixes.
- James Wickett - James is an innovative
thought leader in the DevOps and Information Security communities,

when he ran a web startup company as a student, and James is

cloud-based products for the Embedded Software division of Mentor
Graphics. James' bio is linked here.
- Olivier Saudan - Olivier is a software
security analyst with 10 yeras experience in operations (including
